About the book

Vascular disease is the major cause of myocardial infarction, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease. Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is an excellent technique for vascular imaging which does not use ionizing radiation and gadolinium and can combine anatomic visualization with functional assessment in the same study. This book is a comprehensive text written by experts in their field.

This book discusses current techniques and clinical applications of MRA. Some of the topics discussed in this book include MRA techniques, diagnosis of coronary artery disease by MRA, diagnosis of intracranial arterial and venous disease by MRA, diagnosis of carotid artery disease and vertebral artery disease by MRA diagnosis of thoracic artery disease by MRA, diagnosis of abdominal aorta and mesenteric artery disease by MRA, diagnosis of lower extremity peripheral artery disease by MRA, diagnosis of renal artery disease by MRA, pulmonary MRA, diagnosis of upper extremity and hand arterial disease by MRA, and venous imaging by MRA.

This book will be a valuable resource for physicians who diagnose and treat vascular disease.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
