About:

"Coronary stenosis. Imaging, structure and physiology" has been designed as a clinically and research orientated reference for all cardiologists, physicians, cardiovascular imagers, trainees and investigators working in the field of ischemic heart disease.

This book comes to fill a gap in the medical literature: a textbook providing a comprehensive, multifaceted analysis of atherosclerotic and non-atherosclerotic coronary stenoses, addressing multiple issues that are of key importance in invasive and non-invasive diagnostic studies of the coronary vessels.
