Diagnostic imaging is a process used to view the interior parts of the body for clinical analysis. It is also used to get a visual representation of the function of some tissues and organs. Diagnostic imaging reveals the internal structures of the body which are hidden by the skin and bones so that the diseases can be diagnosed and treated. Diagnostic imaging of the chest involves the usage of plain X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, nuclear scanning and ultrasonography. The non-invasive imaging of the heart by using ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging is known as cardiac imaging. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts and emerging trends in the field of diagnostic imaging. Most of the topics introduced herein cover new techniques and the applications of diagnostic imaging of chest, breast, heart and vessels. Researchers and students in this field will be assisted by this book.

DID YOU KNOW... ...women are 50% more likely to be misdiagnosed following a heart attack? ...more than twice as many women die from coronary heart disease than from breast cancer in the UK? ...two-thirds of clinical research into heart disease focuses on men? Coronary heart disease remains the single biggest killer of women worldwide, yet it is still not seen as a woman's problem. Every day the female heart patient is measured by male standards, which leads to confusion, unclear diagnosis and often the wrong treatment. In fact, women are incomparable to men down to each body cell, which has consequences for both health and disease. When it comes to medical science, cardiology is the most prominent example in which gender matters. In A Woman's Heart, Professor Maas explores how the female heart works and provides practical advice for women, including: - The biology of the female heart - how it works and ages differently to a male's - The effects of female-specific issues, such as menopause - Heart attacks in women - Lifestyle tips to prevent heart disease This vital book is the result of decades of international research. It exposes the gender bias in cardiology and paves the way for better heart health for women everywhere.

This book reviews all aspects of the diagnosis and management of heart disease in women, covering areas such as gender differences in metabolic syndrome, hypertension and atherogenesis. Gender differences in cardiovascular diseases are widespread, but while gender medicine takes into account the effects of sex and gender on the health of women and men, traditionally, women have been underrepresented in cardiovascular clinical trials, in management of different cardiac diseases and drug use. Gender Differences in the Pathogenesis and Management of Heart Disease deals with the gender-specific differences in cardiac physiology and diseases and brings into perspective the critical significance of gender in management of cardiovascular disease presentations and management. As such it is of enormous use to all clinical staff who manage women with cardiovascular disease.
