Each year, more than one million cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) are implanted worldwide for cardiac rhythm management, and chest x-ray is a common initial diagnostic method for evaluation of cardiac and pulmonary diseases. Radiographic Atlas of Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices provides comprehensive, step-by-step coverage that is invaluable for cardiac electrophysiologists and other clinicians who encounter patients with these devices. An outstanding editorial team of Drs. Majid Haghjoo, Farzad Kamali, and Amirfarjam Fazelifar, all of the Rajaie Cardiovascular Medical & Research Center in Tehran, Iran, provide expert guidance in recognizing the typical features of these devices and detecting related complications in post-implant patients.
Offers a stepwise and user-friendly approach to diagnostic evaluation of chest x-rays in patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs).
Includes chest x-rays of common and new CIEDs, including permanent pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), cardiac resynchronization therapy devices (CRT pacemakers and defibrillators, novel CIEDs (SICDs and wireless pacemakers), and implantable cardiac monitors (ICMs).
Differentiates among different types of CIEDs, their proper position on x-rays, and common complications.
Features 85 high-quality radiographic images.
