6. Cardiovascular Heart MRI Teaching Files
at http://www.cardiac-mri.com/ is an educational web site offering cardiology teaching tools as well as information about cardiovascular imaging and radiology of the heart and blood vessels. The web site, credited to André J. Duerinckx, MD-PhD, focuses on cardiovascular anatomy and pathology visualized with MRI, MRA, CT and US. While the initial chapters describe the normal anatomy of the heart and great vessels, the subsequent sections deal with pathology and disease entities of the thoracic aorta, heart, pulmonary arteries and abdominal and peripheral vessels.
