Each year I attend Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT), I comb the event and its sessions looking for the next big trend or technological innovations in cardiovascular devices. Below...

Catheter-based intra-cardiac echocardiography (ICE) is an imaging modality similar to intra-vascular ultrasound (IVUS). It allows imaging inside the heart to visualize cardiac structures and blood...

Probably the biggest trend occurring in cardiovascular ultrasound systems today is the adoption of 3-D/4-D echo systems, which offer the benefits of better images, more data, better measurement...
The biggest trend in cardiovascular ultrasound is the adoption of 3-D/4-D echo systems for better images, more data, better measurement quantification and faster workflow. Other key trends include...
New guidelines review strengths of current imaging modalities and make recommendations for using them to optimize patient management.

April 7, 2011 — The American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2011 in New Orleans this week offered an expo floor filled with hundreds of cardiovascular products. The following five technologies stood...

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can "dramatically improve" physicians' ability to detect heart disease and stratify future risk, said Thomas Porter, M.D., at the 16th European Symposium on...

In the same fashion that the echocardiogram helped transform the cardiac exam, recent developments in the field of portable ultrasound are providing cardiologists with a new way to visualize the...

Over the past few years, there have been three key areas of advancement in cardiovascular ultrasound technology – miniaturization, 3-D/4-D imaging and quantification measurements.

A quick look at the current statistics sends an alarming message: The state of cardiovascular health in the United States is abysmal. With diabetes and obesity on the rise, we as physicians need...
