The American College of Cardiology recently published findings in JACC: Basic to Translational Science that show the pace of innovation and investment in developing new cardiovascular therapeutics has decreased over the past 22 years.

A randomized trial found that patients with suspected coronary heart disease who underwent cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR)–guided care had a significantly lower probability of unnecessary angiography within 12 months compared with patients who received National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines–directed care. The difference was not statistically different between CMR-guided care and myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS)–guided care.
