Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The authors investigate the role of CT as an adjunct to other investigations of cardiac ischaemia and also its role as a screening tool. . There are also multiple case histories and advice on how to read and report examinations. . this textbook is well written, well laid out and immensely practical for anyone at beginner or advanced level interest in coronary CT. It represents a helpful bench book that should be on the shelf of any department carrying out cardiac CT." (John Reid, RAD Magazine, January, 2010)
