Stuttgart/New York, September 2010 – The high prevalence of cardiovascular disease in the western world, coupled with the continuous evolution of imaging technology, makes the material covered in
Cardiac Imaging more relevant today than ever before. This recently published book assists readers in diagnosing the full range of cardiovascular diseases and is part of RadCases, an innovative website and book series created by the Thieme.
"The 250 cases we have prepared include not only common presentations, but uncommon presentations of common problems and examples of cases you must diagnose immediately to avert potential disaster," says author Dr. Carlos Santiago Restrepo.
The authors have written cases that enable a reader to shine on board exams and in practice. Each case has been carefully selected in order to simulate everything residents and medical professionals encounter during rounds, rotations and on exams. Numerous, clearly presented high-resolution color radiographs showcase key cardiac cases.
With the book and the searchable online database everyone can rapidly locate groups of cases across all radiology subspecialtites that are organized and tailored to their immediate needs. Cardiac Imaging comes with a scratch-off code that provides a reader with twelve months of access to a database of 100 cases plus an additional 150 cases in this particular book's specialty.
"The opportunity to present a large group of cases to you in Cardiac Imaging, part of the RadCases series, is a real privilege for us," states author Dr. Dianna Bardo.
