New CMR protocol diagnoses heart ailments faster, cuts costs

2018 07 Sep

A new rapid imaging protocol for diagnosing heart disease has been shown to improve care and reduce costs in a resource-poor setting. The rapid Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) protocol was embedded in clinical care with training and education, which resulted in important and frequent patient management changes that appear beneficial for both patients...

Faster, Cheaper Cardiac Imaging Test for Developing Countries

2017 30 May

Results of the INCA-Peru study reveal the development of a faster and cheaper cardiac-imaging test that can be used in developing countries. Findings were presented at EuroCMR 2017. The new cardiac-imaging test is believed to be three times faster and costs less than one-fifth. The test also changed clinical management in nearly 33% of patients.... Read more

Myocardial Fibrosis Identified as New Therapeutic Target

2016 17 May

Myocardial fibrosis could be a future therapeutic target after researchers found it correlated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) referred for cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). The study was presented today at EuroCMR 2016 by Dr Yaron Fridman, a cardiology fellow at the Heart and Vascular Institute,... Read more

New Cardiac Imaging More Accurate By Removing Need To Breathe

2016 17 May

A new technique for cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging can improve accuracy by removing patients’ need to breathe, as the lack of motion allows acquisition of higher quality images in less time, according to research presented at EuroCMR 2016 in Florence, Italy. “In many imaging techniques, but particularly in CMR, you need a relatively...
