D. , Ochsner Clinic Foundation It impressively covers the full gamut, encompassing plain film, echocardiography, catheter angiography, SPECT, CT and MRI—a range I have not seen in any other cardiac imaging case series I have read to date. The images are printed on excellent quality paper, and are suitably sized to identify the pertinent abnormality without resorting to a magnifying glass. —Jonathan Weir-McCall, Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellow, Clinical Radiology, Ninewells Hospital and Medical School, Dundee, UK On new generation cardiac CT scanners (Aquilion ONE, Brilliance iCT, Discovery CT755 HD and Somatom Definition Flash) for cardiac imaging in people with suspected or known coronary artery disease in whom imaging is difficult with earlier generation CT scanners.

Nothing in this guidance should be interpreted in a way that would be inconsistent with compliance with those duties. More events occur in patients with normal or mildly abnormal functional tests, as shown by latest analysis of PROMISE study. ASE EACVI publish an update for echocardiographic assessment of LV diastolic function presenting with symptoms of dyspnea or heart failure.

Meta-analysis of prognostic studies shows increased rate of SCD with increasing LGE in patients with HCM after adjusting for other factors. The spring meeting this year will be a joint meeting between the BSCI/BSCCT, BSCMR and BNCS. The BSCI is a multi-professional society for all those interested in and practicing in cardiac imaging. We act as the national special interest group for cardiovascular CT (CCT). This function and the educational and professional quality standards relating to CCT have been brought together as the British Society of Cardiovascular CT (BSCCT) within the BSCI. We are a multi-modality cardiac imaging society. This is reflected in our scientific meetings, which enables us to discuss and compare different imaging techniques.

If your doctor thinks you may have heart disease, the first step is often some kind of cardiac imaging.
