A “CTA-for-All” stroke imaging policy improved LVO detection, fast-tracked intervention and improved outcomes in a recent study of patients with acute ischemic stroke, researchers reported in Stroke.

California-based tech company HeartVista announced Oct. 29 it had received FDA clearance for its AI-assisted One Click cardiac MRI acquisition software.

Researchers have developed a point-of-care smartphone app that helps physicians ID cardiac implanted electrical devices in urgent or emergent settings, according to a study published in JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology.

Leveraging machine learning to read cardiac MRIs could speed up scan analysis while retaining the same accuracy as a physician, researchers reported this month.

A singular, high-dose beam of radiation could improve survival odds in patients with ventricular tachycardia, many of whom are too sick to undergo conventional therapy, researchers reported at the ASTRO meeting in Chicago Sept. 15.

Research out of the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University suggests focused cardiac ultrasound, rather than a full echo workup, might be an effective way of screening for CVD in cats.

The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, together with eight other nuclear medicine and cardiology societies, have published a consensus document outlining the best practices for imaging and diagnosing cardiac amyloidosis.

Researchers have successfully trained a convolutional neural network to detect congestive heart failure with 100% accuracy using data from just one heartbeat.

Handheld POC echo has proven useful in- and outside of the emergency department, but physicians still have reservations.

Long-term exposure to ambient air pollutants—especially ozone—increase a person’s chance of developing emphysema, according to research published August 13 in JAMA.

A study published in JAMA Network Open August 11 suggests that, despite the growing use of imaging modalities like computed tomography and MRI, echocardiography remains the most popular method for imaging patients with heart failure.

Researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston have developed an imaging technique that allows physicians to diagnose CAD without the risk of a contrast agent.
