Left ventricular ECG helps predict stroke survivors

Recent research published in JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging found echocardiographic (ECG) assessment of left ventricular (LV) geometry may help predict outcomes in stroke survivors.

MRI identifies nerves capable of 'rescuing' muscle fibers

Although reaching old age is what many individuals hope for, experiencing muscle loss and frailty is not. However, a study recently published online in the Journal of Physiology may help increase clinical interest in developing methods to reverse muscle frailty and disability caused by old age.

CT imaging of children's bones may help produce safer car seats

By using medical imaging and computer simulated models, researchers at the University of Sheffield in England have recently tested the strength of children's bones to help manufacture safer car seats, toys and other infant and children targeted products, according to a recent article from

Deep learning, 3D imaging of arteries may modernize heart disease diagnosis

Silicon Valley-based Heartflow and medical imaging experts from the Imperial College London have announced a collaboration to develop a noninvasive method to detect coronary artery blockages by producing 3D images of the heart. 

Microvascular dysfunction identified by innovative cardiac MRI techniques

A pair of studies published online Feb. 26 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found two novel forms of cardiac MRI that may accurately detect microvascular coronary artery disease (CAD) and cardiac microvascular dysfunction (CMD), according to a recent article by Cardiovascular Business.

Can a screening tool ID kids who can have an MRI without anesthesia?
