  • This book, which is based on an N1H workshop, reviews the current status of the various noninvasive modalities available for the detection of atherosclerotic vascular disease. Ultrasound imaging, Doppler techniques, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, and digital subtraction angiography are covered in separate chapters. Other topics, such as dynamic spatial reconstruction, are also discussed. The chapter by Dr. Budinger on emission tomography (i.e., single photon tomography and positron tomography) is especially thorough. The book is organized in three sections containing concise chapters, which are individually referenced. The first section presents the pathology and natural history of atherosclerosis. The second section focusesmore » on the need for noninvasive tests for studying atherosclerotic disease of peripheral, carotid, and coronary arteries. The third and largest section reviews the status of clinical applications of the various modalities to atherosclerotic disease.« less
  • Subjects covered in this book include echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, magnetic resonance imaging, computerized tomography, digital angiography and a final chapter on older but still clinically useful noninvasive techniques.
  • The spectrum of techniques examined includes Doppler imaging, echocardiography, nuclear magnetic resonance, positron emission tomography scanning, subtraction radiography, strain gauge plethysmography, and ultrasound. For each of these methods, the authors consider the theoretical bases, practical pros and cons, and clinical and research applications. Detailed attention is devoted to comparison of these techniques with respect to sensitivity, accuracy, speed, and quality of images and data.
  • In this second edition all of the chapters have been revised and new contributors have added chapters on computers and data management in the lab, the training of vascular lab technologists, duplex scanning, transcutaneous rhoO/sup 2/ determination and many other important topics.
  • Separate abstracts were prepared for two chapters. Ten additional chapters discuss radionuclide imaging of the brain and compare the diagnostic value of brain scanning with a new transmission scanning technique, computerized transaxial tomography (CTT scanning).
