by Patricia M. Carrascosa (Editor), Ricardo C. Cury (Editor), Mario J. GarcĂ­a (Editor), Jonathon A. Leipsic (Editor)
First book about spectral cardiovascular imaging
Update in general aspects on Dual Energy CT technique
Potential new cardiovascular CT applications in the clinical practice

From the Back Cover
This book focuses on the rapidly developing and promising novel applications of Dual Energy CT (DECT) in cardiovascular medicine. Although developed many years ago, DECT represents the newest significant advancement in the field of computed tomography, the clinical utility of which has recently expanded as many new applications have been developed. In the field of cardiovascular medicine, DECT has been applied for purposes such as the evaluation of myocardial ischemia, myocardial viability and atherosclerotic plaque characterization.

As the first book of its kind, contains practical and clinically relevant information on the protocols used that provide precise quantification of coronary artery stenosis using either different monochromatic levels or material decomposition, reduction of beam hardening artifacts in perfusion studies and optimizing endovenous contrast, among others. It is therefore a valuable read for residents, fellows and practicing clinicians in cardiac imaging and cardiology.

About the Author
Patricia Carrascosa MD, PhD is currently assistant professor of Buenos Aires University in Argentina. She obtained her PhD in Virtual Colonoscopy in 2007. She has been working in research in 3D special studies (virtual studies, angiographies) and since 1999 she has focused her main activity in the cardiovascular field in CT and MRI. Mario J. Garcia MD is an internationally known leader in the development and clinical advancement of cardiac diagnostic technology, including cardiac CAT, echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. His pioneering work with CAT coronary angiography, a noninvasive technology that has revolutionized the diagnosis of coronary artery disease, has led to establishing a new standard of care. Ricardo C. Cury MD is a non-invasive cardiovascular radiologist and is the Chairman of Radiology Associates of South Florida, a large multi-specialty group. Dr. Cury is also Director of Cardiac Imaging of Baptist Hospital of Miami and Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute. Jonathon Leipsic MD, FRCPC, FSCCT is Chairman of the Department of Radiology for Providence Health Care and the Vice Chairman of Research for the UBC Department of Radiology.
