Cardiac imaging—direct diagnosis in radiology: Dx-Direct

      Cardiac Imaging Direct Diagnosis in Radiology is one of a series named Dx-Direct composed of 12 Thieme books covering the main subspecialties in radiology such as gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, and interventional radiology. The aim of the “Dx-Direct” is not to present and describe all possible cardiovascular diseases but only the cases radiologists are most likely to see in their typical working day. All the books in the series discuss each condition or disease following the same format: Definitions (Epidemiology, Etiology), Imaging Signs, Clinical Aspects (Typical Presentation, Treatment Options, Course and Prognosis), Differential Diagnosis and key References. All sections are well balanced, easy and fast to read, with just the right level of detail. Since cardiac imaging has typically a multimodality approach, it is worthy of notice to begin each Imaging Sign section indicating the modality of choice which would allow the reader to reach the right diagnosis. Particularly valuable are the What Does the Clinician Want to Know and the Tips and Pitfalls Sections, presented at the end of each case, that discuss those aspects with simplicity, frequently introducing the main clinical data not to be forgotten by the radiologist. The key references are comprehensive and updated.
