Cardiovascular Nuclear Medicine and MRI: Quantitation and Clinical Applications
Johan H. C. Reiber, E. van der Wall
Kluwer Academic Publishers, Jan 1, 1992 - Technology & Engineering - 403 pages
In recent years there have been major advances in the fields of cardiovascular nuclear medicine and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. In nuclear cardiology more adequate tomographic systems have been designed for routine cardiac use, as well as new or improved quatitative analytic software packages both for planar and tomographic studies implemented on modern state-of-the-art workstations. In addition, artificial intelligence techniques are being applied to these images in attempts to interpret the nuclear studies in a more objective and reproductive manner.
