Clinical Echocardiography and Other Imaging Techniques in Cardiomyopathies Hardback
Edited by Bruno Pinamonti, Gianfranco Sinagra
This book describes the role of basic and advanced imaging techniques in the diagnosis of different types of cardiomyopathy, including dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and infiltrative/storage cardiomyopathies.
While the main focus is on echocardiography, the applications of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography are also described.
Throughout, a clinically oriented approach is employed: detailed attention is paid to differential diagnosis and numerous high-quality images depict the main features of the various types of cardiomyopathy.
Consideration is also given to the genetics of cardiomyopathies, with analysis of genotype-phenotype relationships.
Finally, the potential value of imaging in prognostic assessment and in guiding treatment is described.
