Table of contents

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) is a rapidly evolving tool. This book presents a state-of-the-art compilation of expert contributions to the field, each examining normal and pathologic anatomy of the cardiovascular system as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging. Functional techniques such as myocardial perfusion imaging and assessment of flow velocity are emphasized. The book represents a multi-disciplinary approach to the field.
