Society-sanctioned guidelines on care are valuable tools, but accessing key information from the often complicated statements has been a daunting task. Now, practitioners and their institutions have a clear path to successful application of guidelines from the American Heart Association. This book outlines the key AHA guidelines, Statements, and Performance Measures and includes comparisons with the associated European guidelines, and offers a strong online component, which alerts users who sign up to new updates to the guidelines and other relevant information, plus provides links through to the full guidelines and statements. This careful revision keeps pace with developments in the field, with new chapters on PET Metabolism, CT and MRI in the Emergency Department, Image-Guided Electrophysiology Mapping and Ablation, and Identification of Vulnerable Atherosclerotic Plaque by Radionuclide and CT techniques, plus the introduction of new contributors Udo Hoffman and Stephan Achenbach.
Praised in its previous edition as a concise source of essential information, this new edition presents the most recent information in an accessible format and serves as an excellent reference source for all cardiologists, radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians.
