The European Society of Cardiology Textbook of Cardiovascular Imaging puts patient at center
Date:12/16/2009

Imaging is at the heart of diagnostic procedures in cardiology. The idea of publishing an ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Imaging which accumulates the expertise of European cardiovascular imagers, is therefore long awaited. The textbook is also unique in that it is written with a patient rather than technology-based approach, helping clinicians to explain the condition to the patient, with the aid of imaging.

The book is divided into sections that treat specific themes involving theory and practice of cardiac imaging and its clinical use in all major cardiovascular diseases from coronary heart disease to cardiomyopathies.

The textbook which will be published early next year, can be ordered now through the publisher's website (1).

Professor J L Zamorano Gomez (president of the European Association of Echocardiography, a registered branch of the ESC), Spain, is the Editor-in-Chief. He says the textbook is useful for anyone looking for a general overview:

"The beauty of this textbook is that it is not technical and the patient is at the centre of the book. The key question is always how these modalities can help in our diagnosis. In the near future, CV Imaging will be multi-disciplinary.

Not only cardiologists would buy this book, but also those who are interested in CV Imaging. What is really different about the book is it is written by European specialists 99% of contributors are from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and are key opinion leaders in their field. It is an ESC book so this implies quality. There are also videos and slides available so this makes learning easier."

Imaging is an area that is rapidly developing in cardiology, explains Prof Zamorano, as it fulfils several important functions: "Imaging impacts in the diagnosis and the prognosis. Imaging helps in the monitoring of the treatment applied to the different patients.

The ESC became aware of the need for a book combin
