Multimodality cardiovascular imaging is essential for interventional cardiac procedures and both fields are evolving rapidly. Multimodality Imaging in Cardiac Interventions captures the current state of clinical utility and provides a unique visual aide for teaching, training, and education. The editors have brought together a variety of leading experts from across the United Kingdom to guide the interested viewer in the indications and practicalities of state-of-the-art techniques. This book visually demonstrates the indications and methodology involved in several important cardiac interventions that rely heavily on multimodality cardiovascular imaging for their success. Chapters cover topics such as transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), device closure of paravalvular leaks in the mitral and aortic positions, and the adjunctive use of computed tomographic angiography in percutaneous coronary intervention. Visual simplicity in combination with excellent narration from experts in the field results in a unique up-to-date educational tool. This book will appeal to a wide range of professionals from clinicians to potential patients and the medical press interested in learning about important advances in cardiovascular medicine.
