Based on the learning goals of the Society of Thoracic Radiology Curriculum in Cardiac Radiology, Cardiac Imaging presents core knowledge that must be learned to accurately and effectively interpret cardiac imaging studies. This book imparts essential facts about all imaging modalities and the basics of interpretation and technique in a concise and readable format. Part of the Rotations in Radiology series, this book offers a guided approach to imaging diagnosis. Each pathology is covered within a targeted discussion that reviews the definition, clinical features, anatomy and physiology, how to approach the image, what not to miss, differential diagnosis, clinical issues, key points, and key references. The book's manageable size is ideal for Residents' use during training on a specific rotation and for exam review, or as a quick refresher for the established Radiologist.
