Explore the latest in cardiac imaging, including advances in echocardiography, CT and MR angiography, functional imaging, and more.
This cohort study assesses whether echocardiographic imaging of pediatric patients with Kawasaki diseaes 6 weeks after onset of illness adds value for patients whose earlier examinations showed no coronary artery abnormalities.
This case-control study explores the association of pericoronary adipose tissue computed tomography attenuation with culprit lesions compared with nonculprit lesions in patients with acute coronary syndrome and significantly stenosed lesions in stable controls with coronary artery disease.
A 44-year-old African American woman without traditional atherosclerotic risk factors or known coronary artery disease presented to the emergency department with chest pain. Urgent coronary angiography revealed thrombolysis in myocardial infarction flow grade 2 in the left anterior descending artery and second diagonal branch. What would you do next?
This study examines the use of a limited transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) that evaluates only the left ventricle and its association with overall use of TTE.
This multicenter diagnostic study determines the intermodality variability of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) measured by echocardiography, gated single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in patients with coronary artery disease and left ventricular dysfunction.
This cohort study investigates the nonculprit plaque phenotype in patients with acute coronary syndrome according to culprit plaque pathology (erosion vs rupture) by 3-vessel optical coherence tomography imaging.
This cross-sectional study examines the accuracy of physician visual assessment vs quantitative coronary angiography in the interpretation of coronary stenosis severity among adults undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention in China.
A 75-year-old woman recently diagnosed as having stage IV lung adenocarcinoma was admitted for dyspnea and weakness. Transthoracic echocardiogram showed normal biventricular function with normal wall motion and shaggy, bulky masses on the tips of both mitral valve leaflets. What would you do next?
This review examines basic concepts and applications of point-of-care ultrasonography, as well as issues surrounding training and implementation.
This systematic review evaluates the accuracy of computed tomography–derived fractional flow reserve in diagnosis for patients with myocardial ischemia.
This article reviews the benefits of Project Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes at a single rural center.
This case-matched cohort study examines whether serum retinol-binding protein 4, an endogenous transthyretin ligand, is a valid diagnostic test for transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis among African Americans with heart failure.
