Most Popular Cardiology Technology Content in August 2021

COVID in cardiology was again a key driver of content pageviews on DAIC in August 2021. Also, a key new technology that cardiologists had a lot of interest in was the release of 3D/4D intra-cardiac echocardiography (ICE) to better guide EP and structural heart procedures without the need for transesophageal echo and its associated need for deep anesthesia. 

COVID in cardiology was again a key driver of content pageviews on DAIC in August 2021. Also, a key new technology that cardiologists had a lot of interest in was the release of 3D/4D intra-cardiac echocardiography (ICE) to better guide EP and structural heart procedures without the need for transesophageal echo and its associated need for deep anesthesia. This was the topic of two articles from Northwestern Medicine and Mayo Clinic in the top content this month.
