Imaging technology has advanced markedly during the past decade, with one of the primary growth areas being cardiac imaging. However, the speed of these advances poses a risk that technology will outpace understanding of how to apply it appropriately. This has created a vital need for authoritative leaders in the field to share their knowledge with the wider physician community. To take advantage of the health benefits, the practicing clinician needs solid, practical information on how to both use and apply this rapidly evolving imaging technology. The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Imaging, from the European Society of Cardiology and edited by José-Luis Zamorano, Jeroen Bax, Frank Rademakers, and Juhani Knuuti, fills this important need to bridge the gap between cutting-edge technology and the clinical practice of medicine.
