Certain MRI Findings May Predict Future Cardiac Events
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging may help clinicians predict future cardiac events among patients with coronary artery disease or recent MI.
Imaging Software System Improves Heart Disease Diagnosis
CT angiography and SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging improves with the use of synchronized multimodal heart visualization software.
CT Measurements May Help Predict Incident Cardiovascular Events
Using CT to measure coronary artery calcium may aid physicians in predicting the chances of incident cardiovascular events.
Cardiologists Urged to Reduce Patient Radiation Exposure
Cardiologists should review cardiac imaging use for their patients in an effort to reduce patient radiation exposure.
PET-CT With 18F-NaF PET-CT Detects High-Risk Coronary Plaques
PET-CT with the radioactive tracer 18F-NaF PET-CT helps clinicians detect ruptured and high-risk coronary plaques.
T1 Mapping with Cardiovascular MRI Detects Fabry Disease, Heart Damage
A new technique, quantitative T1 mapping with cardiovascular MRI, can help clinicians detect Fabry disease and the severity of heart damage.
Women Exposed To Low-Dose Radiation After MI At Greater Cancer Risk
Low-dose ionizing radiation from cardiac imaging after heart attack poses a greater cancer risk for women than men.
