The book is based on a joint symposium organized by the Departments of Cardiology, Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine of the University Hospital Leiden and the Cleveland Clinical International Center. Both centers have a long-standing reputation in the various aspects of cardiac imaging techniques and in their clinical applications. Faculty members from each of the two centers have written reviews in those areas in which they have extensive experience, selecting advances in imaging techniques in ischemic heart disease as the central topic. All major imaging techniques are addressed: echocardiography, cardiovascular nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance, and contrast angiography. All chapters are written with the appropriate technique as well as the specific disease in mind. Recent developments in the field mean that the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease has become more accurate, with an inherent improvement in patient management. The book will aid the physician to differentiate and recognize the viability of the myocardium in ischemic heart disease; an essential step in choosing therapeutic modalities. Audience: All cardiologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, physicists and basic scientists who wish to stay up to date in this exciting field.
