An all-inclusive overview of cardiology in a trusted landmark reference


"This well-organized textbook begins with a thoughtful discussion of cardiology's past and future. It presents readers with the foundations of cardiovascular medicine and the basics of cardiovascular evaluation. These initial chapters provide an excellent overview of topics in general cardiology from guidelines to newer diagnostic modalities such as MRI, CT, and PET. Subsequently, the book is organized to provide readers with a focused approach to other areas of cardiology from heart failure to electrophysiology and interventional cardiology."
This is a very useful reference that compiles a vast amount of information on the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular diseases in one book. It continues to be one of best overall references in this field. -- Doody's Review Service
