A noninvasive ultrasound imaging technique can help healthcare providers localize atrial and ventricular cardiac arrhythmias, according to new research published in Science Translational Medicine. Could this method be added to clinical workflows in the near future?
New research published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine suggests PET myocardial perfusion imaging can be used to quantify myocardial blood flow and myocardial flow reserve, which have been proven as accurate indicators of adverse outcomes after heart transplants.
Research presented at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles this February suggests a portable, low-field MRI system may soon improve access to care for patients who have trouble making it to a high-tech facility.
CT angiography—preferably followed by immediate thrombectomy—was cost-effective and beneficial for triage in a recent study of patients with acute minor stroke, researchers reported in Radiology Jan. 14.
A study published in the latest edition of JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging suggests cardiac magnetic resonance imaging can be as effective as measurements of fractional flow reserve in evaluating nonculprit lesions after STEMI.
