This ACC Symposium promises to review a lot of material on heart failure imaging—and with good reason. The rate of heart failure continues to rise, costing the U.S. healthcare system millions of dollars annually. Cardiologists want simple and effective techniques to diagnose and manage their growing heart failure patient population. The truth is that one MRI exam can deliver a plethora of information, while not exposing patients to unnecessary radiation.
Attendees can expect to learn about the use of MRI to assess myocardial morphology and function, evaluate ischemic heart disease, evaluate hypertrophic and infiltrative cardiomyopathies, and test for heart failure with normal ejection fraction.
