Cardiac Imaging Update 2017

by GN Mahapatra, PC Manoria, Diwakar Jain

The “Cardiac Imaging Update 2017” is a unique attempt encompassing an amalgam of cardiac imaging and clinical cardiology. In the era of multiple super-specialties, it is an excellent step for maintaining unity among diversity in the field of medical sciences. It is a unique blend of cardiovascular diagnostic and prognostic imaging and the appropriateness of the clinical and procedural management. The carefully selected chapters have exploited the uniqueness of each imaging modality and identified its strengths to best optimize the clinical care. This book divided into the two sections. The first section provides detail about the cardiac imaging. Cardiac Imaging is devoted to noninvasive imaging. This section consists of 19 chapters, which discusses about the highlights current concepts of echocardiography, computed tomography (CT), cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), positron emission tomography-CT (PET-CT), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and multimodality imaging, in various cardiovascular diseases. Chapters have also been dedicated to the current interventional imaging techniques such as optical coherence tomography. The second section focuses on the clinical cardiology. This section consists 11 chapters. Clinical cardiology has chapters on emerging therapies such as proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors and direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in atrial fibrillation, ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), statin intolerance, and sudden cardiac death, etc. In clinical cardiology, consideration of several areas of current interest in cardiology outside of imaging, is explored. Overall, clinicians performing cardiac imaging as well as those who utilize these techniques in practice, will find the book very useful to provide a comprehensive update of the status of the clinical applications of the imaging approaches as well as an update of important issues of clinical cardiology.
