Studies Show New Diagnostic Uses for Echocardiography

June 2, 2010 – Key research on new diagnostic uses for cardiac ultrasound will be presented at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 21st Annual Scientific Sessions June 12-15, in San Diego.

Leading experts in cardiology will present and discuss the latest clinical and research developments in adult and pediatric echocardiography. Among the key presentations are:

• Heart valve surgical candidates can now better predict their risk of dying following surgery: Information from this new study will help patients and families calculate risk of heart valve replacement surgery

• Researchers unveil noninvasive technique for early detection of heart muscle damage in breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy: Findings help identify cancer patients who may benefit from alternative chemotherapy regimens

• Major study proves more highly trained physicians can prevent superfluous health care costs: The study found discrepancies in heart exams led to additional, costly testing including invasive heart procedures in five patients

• Web-based tool developed to track appropriate ordering of heart ultrasounds exams: Preventing unnecessary exams could result in saving significant health care dollars

• Study finds screening heart and circulation ultrasound can better determine risk of heart disease in obese women: Heart and circulation ultrasound trumps current predictors of heart disease among women with known metabolic risk factors or obesity

• Study reveals successful and noninvasive techniques to treat blood clots: Pediatric and small adult patients among the many to benefit from findings
