In this remarkable period of progressive advancements in medical imaging, in no region of the physique are dramatic breakthroughs greater exemplified than in imaging of the guts. it's tricky for this author to be target approximately this paintings simply because he has watched its improvement within the incredibly able fingers of a cardiovascular radiologist and a cardiovascular internist, functioning as a terrific amalgam in its instruction. within the approach, the writer of this Foreword has built an unbounded enthusiasm for the content material of the paintings. on the outset it needs to be under pressure that the dramatic profits within the boost ment of latest imaging modalities and the advancements within the previous [e. g. , ul trasonography, echocardiography, radionuclides, automated tomography (CT), cineradiography, magnetic resonance (MR)] have replaced our thoughts in regards to the anatomy of a couple of organ platforms. Anatomy or even body structure nearly are being rewritten. those alterations practice fairly to the chest (mediastinum), biliary tract, vital apprehensive approach (brain), middle and nice vessels and the hemodynamics of the cardiovascular method. The authors have proven during this exhaustive treatise how some distance our comprehend ing of the numerous cardiac abnormalities has stepped forward, made attainable by means of the applying of the hot modalities and extra advances in these already estab lished, fairly echocardiography and radioisotope scanning. those de velopments have altered and further considerably to our physique of data, quite within the many complicated congenital anomalies and in coronary artery disease.
