VIDEO: The Impact of the ISCHEMIA Trial on Cardiac Imaging

Cardiac Imaging | September 10, 2018

Leslee Shaw, Ph.D., professor of cardiology and radiology, Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, and past-president of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT), explains how cardiac imaging will be used in the ISCHEMIA Trial to assess treatment strategies for patients with stable ischemic heart disease. The trial was discussed by Shaw at the 2018 American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) meeting.

ACC | March 30, 2012

Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology Editor Dave Fornell discusses trends and shares his choices of the most innovative technologies shown on the floor of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2012 Scientific Session, held March 24-27 in Chicago. A couple of key trends were evident on the show floor — new technology to support trans-aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and the launch of new cardiovascular image and information systems (CVIS) to support healthcare's adoption of proposed Stage 2 meaningful use (MU) requirements. Other highlights include a balloon-inflatable TAVR/EVAR introducer sheath, 3-D intra-cardiac echo, a mobile angiography system for hybrid ORs and chocolate for heart health.

DAIC editor Dave Fornell explains some of the most innovative cardiovascular imaging technologies showcased by vendors at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in December 2011.

Ultrasound Imaging | December 16, 2011

At RSNA 2011, Toshiba unveiled its Aplio 500 ultrasound system, which offers a unique 3-D fly-through imaging capability. The system takes the image dataset and processes it to create a cine loop fly-through of any hollow, fluid-filled blood vessel, duct or organ. The example in this video is of a blood vessel in the liver. The capability and image quality is similar to what is seen in a virtual colonoscopy created from CT datasets. The technology was highlighted in our editor's choice for most innovative new technologies at RSNA 2011. The future applications of this technology may include 3-D ultrasound navigation aids for vessels in the cath lab.

PET-MRI | June 27, 2011

Three companies showed different versions of a combined positron emission tomography (PET)/magnetic resonance (MR) system during the Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM) 2011 annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas. Representatives from Siemens, Philips and GE Healthcare explain how their systems work and how PET/MR may be used as a new modality to show both physiologic and anatomical information.

Mobile Devices | June 27, 2011

MIM Software offers remote viewing software to call up diagnostic-quality medical images on an iPad, iPhone and other smart phones. The software, images and computing power are hosted on a cloud-based server, which can be accessed with these devices from any location. MIM Chief Technology Officer Mark Cain demonstrates the system during the Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM) 2011 annual meeting.

Nuclear Imaging | June 27, 2011

Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM) President George Segall, M.D., offers insights into the trends he saw at the society's 2011 annual meeting, including PET/MRI and amyloid plaque imaging.
