Revisiting Cardiac Anatomy: A Computed-Tomography-Based Atlas and Reference

Revisiting Cardiac Anatomy: A Computed-Tomography-Based Atlas and Reference

Farhood Saremi

ISBN: 978-1-444-32319-1 September 2010 Wiley-Blackwell 320 Pages


This new atlas represents a fresh fresh approach to cardiac anatomy, providing images of unparalleled quality, along with explanatory text, to show in vivo heart anatomy and explain the clinically relevant underlying anatomic concepts. In spite of amazing proliferation of information on the Internet and multiple websites filled with up-to-date information, there is no similarly detailed and systematic compilation of morphological imaging with CT. Organized for both systematic learning and to serve as a quick, yet detailed reference for specific clinical questions, this book is an invaluable resource for medical students and residents, cardiologists, and especially surgeons, interventionalists and electrophysiologists, who depend on ever more detailed imaging support in order to successfully perform increasingly complex coronary and noncoronary structural interventions and other procedures.
