Explore the latest in cardiac imaging, including advances in echocardiography, CT and MR angiography, functional imaging, and more.
This cohort study assesses the use of advanced imaging tests, including chest computed tomography, computed tomographic pulmonary angiography, and ventilation-perfusion scan, for pulmonary embolism from 2004 to 2016.
This cohort study assesses associations of carotid artery magnetic resonance imaging plaque characteristics with incident cardiovascular disease events.
This cohort study assesses whether left ventricular volumes and volume-derived left ventricular ejection fraction are determinants of mortality in aortic regurgitation.
This diagnostic study of computed tomography scans at a single tertiary care center compares radiologist descriptions of abnormal size ascending aortas with definitions of aorta diameters defined by nomograms.
This cohort study evaluates the presence of myocardial injury in unselected patients recently recovered from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
This study examines the association between coronary artery calcium scores, bleeding, and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and explores the net estimated effect of aspirin at different coronary artery calcium thresholds.
This study evaluates the association between trabecular bone volumetric bone mineral density in the spine and coronary artery calcification score.
A 56-year-old woman with a history of CAD, hypertension controlled with medication, and a recent negative stress ECG for atypical chest pain underwent coronary CTA for persistent symptoms, which showed no stenosis or plaque. How would you follow up on the negative imaging result?
This study investigates the use of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in competitive athletes who recovered from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-10) to detect myocardial inflammation that would identify high-risk athletes for return to competitive play.
This cross-sectional study assesses cardiac structure and function in elite female basketball players.
This analysis of the CREDENCE trial compares the diagnostic accuracy of comprehensive anatomic (obstructive and nonobstructive atherosclerotic plaque) vs functional imaging measures for estimating vessel-specific fractional flow reserve.
This economic evaluation creates a model of African American individuals at intermediate risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease to estimate the cost-effectiveness of coronary artery calcium assessment in the decision to use statin therapy.
This cross-sectional cohort study characterizes cardiac structure and function in adolescents and young adults born preterm using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
This Viewpoint describes several articles reporting results of the Scottish Computed Tomography of the Heart trial and discusses their implications.
This post hoc analysis of the Scottish Computed Tomography of the Heart (SCOT-HEART) open-label randomized clinical trial in patients with suspected angina secondary to coronary heart disease evaluates the utility of exercise electrocardiography in contemporary practice and assesses the value of combined functional and anatomical testing.
