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.
