Since its clinical introduction almost 20 years ago, cardiac CT has been embraced as an indispensable noninvasive cardiac imaging modality and an important first-line test for coronary artery disease. Beyond coronary artery disease, the potential of cardiac CT has become evident for diagnosis and guidance of treatment in a variety of other cardiac pathologies, including valvular disease, atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias, endocarditis, cardiac masses, cardiomyopathies, and others.
The European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) has declared as one of their foremost priorities to facilitate education and training in cardiovascular CT through teaching courses, congresses, and a structured certification program. This handbook represents an important step towards dissemination of skills and knowledge in cardiovascular CT. It is a concise and practical companion, to benefit students, trainees or advanced users; cardiologists, radiologists, cardiac surgeons or technicians, in their everyday practice.
Four broad sections cover technical aspects and physical background, coronary indications (e.g. coronary CT angiography, atherosclerosis imaging, stents & bypasses, functional CT imaging, etc.), non-coronary indications (CT for valve disease, infective endocarditis, CT of the left atrium, congenital heart disease, cardiac masses, extracardiac findings, etc.), and finally training and competence in cardiac CT. The handbook features short chapters, enriched with illustrations, tables and condensed summaries, facilitating rapid and intuitive access.

- Updated with the latest imaging techniques and technology and covering even more conditions than before
New to this edition
- Updated and revised to clearly demonstrate the added value each technique can bring to the treatment of all cardiac diseases.
- The ideal reference guide for cardiologists and radiologists alike.
- Contains information on cutting-edge technical developments in echocardiography, CT, CMR and hybrid imaging and well imaging's current role in cardiac interventions
The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Imaging, 3rd edition provides extensive coverage of all cardiovascular imaging modalities. Produced in collaboration with the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging with contributions from specialists across the globe and edited by a distinguished team of experts, it is a 'state of the art' clinically-orientated imaging reference.
Now fully revised and updated with the latest imaging techniques and technology and covering even more conditions than before, it not only discusses the principles of individual modalities but also clearly demonstrates the added value each technique can bring to the treatment of all cardiac diseases. Richly illustrated with colour figures, images, and tables and using a wealth of newly available evidence to link theory to practice, it demonstrates how these techniques can be used in the diagnosis of a range of cardiovascular diseases. Learning how to apply them in practice is made easy with free access to videos and imaging loops online.
Impressive in scope, The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Imaging contains information on cutting-edge technical developments in echocardiography, CT, CMR and hybrid imaging and well imaging's current role in cardiac interventions, such as identifying cardiac structures, helping to guide procedures and exclude possible complications. The application of imaging modalities in conditions such as valvular and coronary heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathies, peri-myocardial disease, adult congenital heart disease and aortic disease, is also extensively considered.
From discussion on improved imaging techniques and advances in technology, to guidance and explanation of key practices and theories, this new edition of The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Imaging is the ideal reference guide for cardiologists and radiologists alike.
Readership: Specialist cardiovascular image practitioners, general cardiologists, and trainees, as well as radiologists.

This highly comprehensive and informed textbook has been prepared by the Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance section of the European Society of Cardiology association on imaging, the EACVI. The EACVI Textbook of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance is the authority on the subject.
The textbook is aligned with ESC Core Curriculum and EACVI Core Syllabus for CMR. It is a practical resource and provides a disease orientated outlook on the subject. Structured with thirteen clear and detailed sections, ranging from Physics to Methodology, and featuring specific sections on ischemic heart disease, myocardial disease, pericardial disease, and congenital heart disease and adult congenital heart disease, The EACVI Textbook of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance provides extensive knowledge across the entire subject area in CMR.
Beautifully illustrated and physical principles enriched with schematic animations, the textbook is advanced further with key video content based on clinical cases. Written by leading experts in the field from across the world, the textbook aims to summarise the existing research and clinical evidence for the various CMR indications and provide an invaluable resource for cardiologists and radiologists across the board.
The textbook is ideal for cardiologists and radiologists new to the field of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, those preparing for ESC certification in CMR, and those established in the field wishing to gain a deep understanding of CMR.
Online access to the digital version is included with purchase of the print book, with accompanying videos referenced within the text available on Oxford Medicine Online.
