Summary CT is an accurate technique for assessing cardiac structure and function. This book collates the knowledge of cardiac CT and presents it in a practical format, suitable for both cardiologists and radiologists. A CD-ROM is included containing a large number of cardiac CT images and videos, providing the reader with a primer in cardiac CT diagnosis
