Covering all aspects of important imaging modality in clinical cardiology, from patient safety to optimal image acquisition to differential diagnoses of difficult images, this handbook tells you everything you need to know to perform, interpret and understand cardiovascular CT images, making it an essential tool in your daily scanning practice.

This is a well-organized question book that provides readers a way to test their knowledge as well as learn through the detailed explanations.

Ed Nicol is a Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, and National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College, London. He has wide experience in cardiovascular imaging including cardiovascular CT, MRI, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology. He was involved in establishing the clinical cardiovascular CT service at both the Royal Brompton and the Royal Berkshire Hospitals. James Stirrup is a Clinical Research Fellow in Cardiac Imaging at the Royal Brompton Hospital and National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College, London. He has experience in nuclear cardiology and cardiovascular computed tomography, holding both CBNC and CBCCT certification in addition to Level 3 accreditation from the Society for Cardiovascular Computed Tomography. Andrew Kelion is Consultant Cardiologist and Director of Imaging at Harefield Hospital, Harefield, UK. He qualified from the University of Oxford, and trained in cardiology in London, Reading and Oxford. He is an experienced nuclear and echo cardiologist. He is a former President of the British Nuclear Cardiology Society and co-author of the Oxford Handbook of Nuclear Cardiology. Simon Padley is a Consultant Radiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. He qualified from Westminster Medical School, University of London, and trained in Radiology in London, Cambridge and Vancouver. He is an experienced cardiothoracic imager and interventionalist.


Cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) has rapidly become an important imaging tool in cardiology, and is now a compulsory component of the core curriculum for cardiology in UK and Europe. It is a complex imaging modality, however, with many aspects to master: CT theory, image acquisition and analysis, interpretation and reporting. This practical handbook is therefore essential reading for both training and reference for all cardiovascular CT users, including cardiologists, radiologists and radiographers, providing practical guidance on performing, analysing and interpreting cardiovascular CT scans in an accessible format.
