It is with pleasure that I write this foreword for the book "Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Coronary Artery Disease", edited by Dr. van der Wall and Dr. de Roos. I am pleased for two reasons. Firstly, as chairman of the Scientific Board of the Interuniversity Cardiology Institute of the Netherlands (ICIN), because ever since the technique became available for use in medicine and biology our Institute has tried and succeeded to promote the introduction and dev- opment of magnetic resonance imaging in cardiology in the Netherlands. ICIN was the first cardiological institute on the European continent to purchase its own nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscope for the study of myocardial metabolism. Secondly, because I have always been infatuated with this noninvasive technique that can produce cardiac images without ionic radiation and at the same time allows for the study of myocardial metabolism as well. And even more so because nuclear magnetic resonance imaging in medicine is one of the shining examples of medical progress as a result of breakthrough discoveries in physics and chemistry.

Editorial Reviews

`The clinician will find this well constructed book an excellent opportunity to update his information on the progress in cardiovascular MRI.' Acta Cardiologica 46 (2) 1991 `It is certainly an appropriate purchase for the individual imaging specialist who deals exclusively with cardiac studies. The student of diagnostic imaging is also given a good perspective of an area that has experienced an enormous expansion. It was a pleasure to review this book.' European Journal of Nuclear Medicine 18 (5) 1991
