A patient presents with new-onset joint pain and is discovered to have a cardiac condition.
When magnetic resonance angiography is performed in patients with neurovascular embolization coils that contain 304V stainless steel, an increased image artifact may occur.
Patients with stable chest pain who have high-risk plaque as identified by coronary computed tomographic angiography may have a higher risk for MACE.
Guidelines for Point-of-Care Use of Transesophageal Echocardiography in Cardiac Arrest Resuscitation
Transesophageal echocardiography offers many clinical benefits in patients with cardiac arrest compared with transthoracic echocardiography.
When compared with other imaging modalities, positron emission tomography offers the greatest diagnostic accuracy for coronary artery disease.
An enhanced MRI detected myocardial macrophage activity within 2 weeks following an acute myocardial infarction.
Magnetic resonance imaging appears to be safe in patients with implantable cardiac devices and abandoned leads.
Cardiac magnetic resonance was superior to transthoracic echocardiogram in identifying a pathologic substrate in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
The effect of hypoglycemia on functional outcomes after endovascular thrombectomy differs, depending on collateral status.
Both iFR and FFR groups experienced similar rates of composite nonfatal myocardial infarction, unplanned revascularization, or all-cause death within 1 year post-procedure.
Cardiovascular disease risk in type 1 diabetes increased with the development of each additional major ECG abnormality.
