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 andanalysis, interpretation and reporting. This practical handbook is therefore essential reading for both training and reference for all cardiovascular CT users, including cardiologists, radiologists and radiographers, providing practical guidance on performing, analysing and interpretingcardiovascular CT scans in an accessible format.
Ed Nicol is a Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, and National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College, London. He has wide experience in cardiovascular imaging including cardiovascular CT, MRI, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology. He was involved in establishing the clinical cardiovascular CT service at both...
