Summary:
Cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) has rapidly become an important imaging tool in cardiology, and is now a compulsory component of the core curriculum for cardiology in UK and Europe. It is a complex imaging modality, however, with many aspects to master: CT theory, image acquisition and analysis, interpretation and reporting. This practical handbook is therefore essential reading for both training and  Read more...
