Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) offers a multitude of insights into cardiovascular diseases by providing information on morphology, function, tissue characterization, and blood flow. The clinical uses of CMR have expanded rapidly, with evidence of applicability for all types of cardiovascular disease. CMR remains a technically complicated imaging modality, however, with extensive experience limited to a small number of referral centres. Furthermore, cardiovascular physicians are often insufficiently aware of its capabilities. This atlas, devoted to the diverse clinical applications of CMR, presents numerous vivid case examples drawn from more than 7000 CMR studies performed by an outstanding CMR unit over a period of six years. CMR appearances of all cardiac diseases are documented in high-quality images with accompanying legends that provide concise information on clinical history and CMR technique. Further useful features include an analytical index of cardiovascular diseases, description of special considerations regarding CMR techniques, access to extra material allowing the reader to browse through figures and videos, and a concise bibliography. The Atlas of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an exhaustive tool that will hopefully assist in rendering CMR as familiar to cardiovascular physicians as other imaging modalities; it will also enable cardiologists, radiologists, medical students, radiographers, and technicians to update and broaden their knowledge of the pathophysiology of cardiac diseases.
