This highly comprehensive and informed textbook has been prepared by the Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance section of the European Society of Cardiology association on imaging, the EACVI. The EACVI Textbook of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance is the authority on the subject.
The textbook is aligned with ESC Core Curriculum and EACVI Core Syllabus for CMR. It is a practical resource and provides a disease orientated outlook on the subject. Structured with thirteen clear and detailed sections, ranging from Physics to Methodology, and featuring specific sections on ischemic heart disease, myocardial disease, pericardial disease, and congenital heart disease and adult congenital heart disease, The EACVI Textbook of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance provides
extensive knowledge across the entire subject area in CMR.
Beautifully illustrated and physical principles enriched with schematic animations, the textbook is advanced further with key video content based on clinical cases. Written by leading experts in the field from across the world, the textbook aims to summarise the existing research and clinical evidence for the various CMR indications and provide an invaluable resource for cardiologists and radiologists across the board.
The textbook is ideal for cardiologists and radiologists new to the field of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, those preparing for ESC certification in CMR, and those established in the field wishing to gain a deep understanding of CMR.
Online access to the digital version is included with purchase of the print book, with accompanying videos referenced within the text available on Oxford Medicine Online.
Massimo Lombardi started his involvement in Cardiac Imaging since his degree in 1981. He was involved in Echocardiography and namely in Myocardial perfusion and Echo Stress. In 1993 he moved to Trondheim, Norway where he started his involvement in Cardiac MR. Back to Italy he leaded in Pisa the first fully dedicated cardiac MR centre in Italy at the National Research Council/Regione Toscana G. Monasterio Foundation. Since 2013 he is leading the
Multimodality Cardiac Imaging Section at I.R.C.C.S. Policlinico San Donato in Milan, Italy.

He is level 3 certified for cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). He has been actively involved in
cardiovascular magnetic resonance since 1998 and reports over 1000 cardiac adult MRI scans each year.
Taking a medical degree followed by a postgraduate degree in cardiology and then a PhD in advanced cardiac imaging Chiara Bucciarelli-Ducci stepped into a consultant senior lecturer role immediately after her doctorate.
Chiara divides her time equally between two organisations: she is Consultant Senior Lecturer in Cardiology for the University of Bristol and Consultant Cardiologist for the NHS, where she leads the Cardiac MRI Unit of Bristol NIHR Cardiovascular Biomedical Research Unit, based at the Bristol Heart Institute. She is also co-Director of the Clinical Research and Imaging Centre (CRIC) Bristol a state-of-the-art imaging and research facility run in partnership by the University and the NHS. In
addition, she has honorary Clinical Senior Clinical Lecturer status at Imperial College London at the National Heart and Lung Institute (NHLI). She sits on the cardiac MRI specialist taskforce for The European Society for Cardiology.
Professor Emanuela Valsangiacomo Buechel received her medical degree from the University of Zurich in Switzerland. She trained in Pediatric Cardiology in Zurich (University Childrens Hospital) and Toronto (Hospital for Sick Children), where she further specialized in Cardiac Imaging, especially Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR). Since 2002 Professor Valsangiacomo is senior consultant in Pediatric Cardiology at the University Childrens Hospital and lecturer at the
University of Zurich.
She is head of Cardiac Imaging and leading the CMR and the fetal cardiology programs. Professor Valsangiacomo has a strong clinical background; her research is mainly focused on different clinical applications of CMR. In 2006 she obtained her venia legendi at the University of Zurich with a thesis on the use of CMR in congenital heart disease, and since 2013 she is adjunct Professor for Pediatrics and Pediatric Cardiology.
