Abstract

In 2019, the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology published excellent articles pertaining to imaging in patients with cardiovascular disease. In this review we will summarize a selection of these articles to provide a concise review of the main advancements that have recently occurred in the field and provide the reader with an opportunity to review a wide selection of articles. In this first article of this 2-part series we will focus on publications dealing with positron emission tomography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance. We will specifically discuss imaging as it relates to coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis and inflammation, coronary artery calcification, cardiomyopathies, cardiac implantable electronic devices, prosthetic valves, and left ventricular assist devices. The second part of this review will place emphasis on myocardial perfusion imaging using single-photon emission computed tomography.
