A companion to the 6th edition of Nuclear Cardiac Imaging, this text offers readers additional case examples and figures not included in the related textbook as well as a concise option for readers seeking a case book for quick review for examination preparation or assistance with image interpretation. Rather than focusing on theoretical explanations, the atlas provides high-yield, rapid imaging support with a particular emphasis on cases with angiography, echocardiography, and other imaging correlations.

With a variety of cases and multiple-choice self-assessment questions along with a comprehensive multiple-choice exam to be taken upon completion of the text, the Companion Atlas will solidify readers’ knowledge and ranges in levels of difficulty, including those intended to challenge even the most expert reader.

  • Additional case examples and figures not included in the textbook version
  • A diverse variety of case examples and comprehensive multiple-choice questions for reader self-assessment
  • Online appendix featuring clinically relevant videos
