Medicine is, fortunately, constantly evolving. Imaging diagnosis is no exception. Technical improvements guarantee further developments in diagnosis. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have attained a recognized value in the diagnosis of the heart, which is continuing to increase. For this reason, we have now provided a separate chapter on diagnostic imaging of the heart. We have placed sectional CT images next to MR images of the heart to facilitate classification. We have limited ourselves to scans which are presently recognized as standard. In the CT images of the coronary vessels of the heart we have diverged from the conventional designations and numbered the vessels as suggested by the American Heart Association in 1975.
Other procedures in MRI and CT visualization of the vascular system have also further improved. For example, stepwise shifts of the table top have become standard procedures in angiography of the pelvis and leg.
Like earlier editions, this edition contains current original images complemented by color illustrations on the opposite page.We have continued to follow our successful method, which combines great clarity with a high level of detail.
For the production of images we are especially grateful to our radiology assistants, Silke Köhl, Sabine Mattil, Stefanie Müller, Heike Philippi, Brigitte Schild, Petra Weber, and Tanja Breunig, and also to Birgit Reuter and Marion Hellinger of the Siemens Manufacturing Center.We owe the good coronary CTs on our 64-line CT to our colleagues Christoph Buntru and Heike Ringling. We express our heartfelt gratitude for intensive discussions and helpful suggestions to our colleagues Sigrid Roth and Simone Zenner.
