Description

Cardiac Computer Tomography: Problem-Based Learning uses a question-and-answer format to build readers’ understanding of this rapidly evolving area of diagnostic imaging and treatment planning. The review covers the technologic advances in imaging that have allowed cardiologists to diagnose, noninvasively, a wide range of cardiac disorders from subclinical atherosclerosis, to obstructive coronary artery disease.

 Maximize CCT Board scores with these outstanding features…

• Socratic approach uses a question-and-answer format to build critical thinking abilities while teaching critical concepts.
• More than 500 questions (65% associated with images) test readers’ knowledge and interpretive skills.
• Multiple-choice questions help familiarize readers with the CCT Board examination format.
• Review questions address CT physics, study acquisition, and interpretation to deliver a complete understanding of the discipline.
• Eleven video clips highlight the complementary role of cine CT in cardiovascular medicine. 
• Chapter on appropriate use of technology uses hypothetical cases and questions to build understanding.

 The review covers all aspects of cardiovascular CT principles and physics, methodologies, and clinical practice—making it a convenient and cost-effective resource for Board review and a quick refresher in the latest cardiac CT techniques.
