Introducing the InVision Health Guides, the dramatic new way to look at our health.

This groundbreaking book brings heart health insights to readers more vividly than most medical professionals have seen. While other heart books are text-heavy with standard images of the heart, this book offers a fabulous, full-color journey through the cardiovascular system using what author Alexander Tsiaras calls "the science of visualization" a groundbreaking visual technology that sees into body tissue in many dimensions and at multiple points in time. The result: stunning visuals that are not merely reflections of the surface of an object (a blood cell, artery, or a heart valve), but are dimensional renderings.

In this visually-driven health book, we see the heart in all its miraculous function, view what can go wrong, and learn options for achieving cardiovascular health. It reveals:

o The development of the cardiovascular system from conception to birth

o The marvel of the adult cardiovascular system and how it works

o How hypertension and other risk factors insidiously damage this beautiful, powerful system

o Surgical, medical, and lifestyle strategies for cardiovascular health

By showing the astonishing beauty of the heart in action, this inspiring book makes the urgency of maintaining heart health real and relevant as never before.
