Nanomedicine for Ischemic Cardiomyopathy Book Review:

Nanomedicine for Ischemic Cardiomyopathy: Progress, Opportunities, and Challenges provides an overview on the recent advances in diagnostic and treatment of ischemic cardiomyopathy diseases including myocardial infarction. Shortcomings of the current methods and how nanomedicine can address those obstacles in the field are discussed including the limitations of newly developed cell therapy approaches to clinical translation and how nanomedicine may overcome crucial issues and facilitate the successful and efficient clinical translation of cell therapy. Biomolecular therapy is also explored as another powerful approach for regeneration of heart tissue including available methods and systematic delivery of biomolecules using nanocarriers to the injured part of myocardium through active targeting. Finally, coverage of major tissue engineering advances for myocardial regeneration, including use of epicardial nanostructured patches for regeneration of injured epicardium and the highly conductive patches for enhancing cross talks between the cardiomyocytes, is explored. This concise, yet rigorous coverage, of the field of cardiac nanotechnology outlines the innovative and necessary role of nanomedicine in regenerative medicine for cardiac repair allowing researchers, clinicians, and nanotechnologists to examine the strengths and limitations of current findings and predict future trends to advance the applications of nanotechnology in cardiovascular biomedical research.

Protocols and Methodologies in Basic Science and Clinical Cardiac MRI Book Review:

This book focuses on the practical issues of the implementation of state-of-the-art acquisition methodologies and protocols for both basic science and clinical practice. It is a practical guidebook for both beginners and advanced users for easy and practical implementation of acquisition protocols. It is relevant for a wide audience that ranges from students, residents, fellows, basic scientists, physicists, engineers, and medical practitioners. The novelty of this book relates to its intended practical use and focus on state-of-the-art cardiac MRI techniques that span both the clinical and basic science fields. In comparison and contrast to other pre-existing books, this book will distinguish from others for its practical usefulness and conciseness. Correspondingly, the book will be used as a handbook (quick reference) for new starters or people who would like to establish state-of-the-art cardiac MRI techniques in their institutions. Given the historical evolution of technique development in MRI, the clinical and basic science topics will be described separately. However, in instances where basic science development complemented (or is envisaged to complement) clinical development (e.g., Diffusion MRI and tractography), every effort will be made to allow a comprehensive review and associations of the clinical/basic science subfields.
