This volume is the fifth in a series on quantitative coronary arteriography (QCA) published over the last nine years. Every two years the latest developments in this exciting field are presented by their leading experts. The following topics, which all currently are and continue to be issues of extensive discussion in the research and clinical communities, are covered in great detail in this volume: endothelial function; comparisons between digital and cine coronary arteriography; inter-laboratory variation between QCA Core Laboratories; the developments in digital archival media; intracoronary pressure, coronary blood flow and flow reserve; quantitative and qualitative features in regression/progression studies; QCA in recanalization studies; and finally the current position of rivaling modalities as coronary angioscopy, intraluminal imaging with ultrasound and fluorescence spectroscopy. This book provides a comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date overview for all clinicians and physicists actively involved or otherwise interested in the most recent developments in quantitative coronary arteriography.
