Cardiac CT and MR for Adult Congenital Heart Disease by Matthias Greutmann MD, Daniel Tobler MD (auth.), Farhood

By Matthias Greutmann MD, Daniel Tobler MD (auth.), Farhood Saremi (eds.)

​​This is the 1st significant textbook to deal with either computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) cardiac imaging of adults for the analysis and therapy of congenital middle affliction (CHD). because the advent of swifter CT scanners, there was great development within the analysis of CHD in adults. this is often in general as a result of greater spatial answer of CT in comparison to MR, which allows radiologists to create extra exact visualizations of cardiac anatomic buildings, resulting in the invention of anomalous pathologies frequently overlooked by means of traditional MR imaging. This e-book is exclusive in highlighting the benefits of either CT and MR for the prognosis of CHD in adults, targeting the complementary collaboration among the 2 modalities that's attainable. Chapters contain discussions of case examples, medical facts, MR and CT photo findings, and correlative cadaveric photos. The chapters concentration not just at the prognosis of the first challenge, but in addition supply readers details on visible clues to seem for that frequently show linked pathologies. This e-book appeals essentially to diagnostic and interventional radiologists, in addition to cardiologists and interventional cardiologists.

A gated contrast angiogram of the appropriate anatomy may be performed with gadolinium-based contrast. Contrast-enhanced and non-contrast angiograms will be discussed in much more detail in a subsequent chapter. Following the administration of gadolinium contrast, delayed enhancement imaging can be performed. Following the contrast-enhanced angiogram, single-shot balanced steady-state free precession (bSSFP) delayed enhancement imaging with a long inversion time (inversion time = 600 ms) is performed in the short and long axis to evaluate for thrombus.
