This volume concentrates on three elements of the large field of cardiac imaging: congenital heart disease, ischemic heart disease, and cardiac transplantation. These three very important topics illustrate to a marked degree the very real potential benefits offered by the technological advances and contrast medium research efforts alluded to above and seem therefore to be ideal vehicles for the consideration of these developments. The material presented in this book will be of benefit to doctors and scientists who are interested in the techniques of cardiac imaging and to an untold number of patients with cardiac disorders throughout the world.
