Index.

"An updated text, which has the merit of taking stock of the situation in a field, the management of cardiovascular risk, where the fast and sudden classification of the patient is essential . . . In conclusion, the work is properly addressed to all those who wish to have an overview of the management of patients at risk for cardiovascular disease, including nuclear physicians involved in nuclear cardiology." (Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging, 2010)

"This is an extremely valuable book for practicing physicians and researchers of cardiovascular disease. I highly recommend it for every medical library.” (Doody's Reviews, May 2009)
