Single-Shot Coronary Quiescent-Interval Slice-Selective Magnetic Resonance Angiography Using Compressed Sensing: A Feasibility Study in Patients With Congenital Heart Disease

Conclusions This study shows that it is feasible to visualize the coronary origins in patients with CHD with clinically acceptable to good image quality using single-shot coronary QISS MRA with CS.

Authors: Dahal S, Budoff MJ Abstract The results of the ISCHEMIA (International Study of Comparative Health Effectiveness With Medical and Invasive Approach) trial were presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in November, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and recently published on March 30, 2020 in the New England Journal of Medicine. After an average follow-up of 3.5 years, invasive therapy did not reduce the major adverse cardiac event (MACE) rate compared with optimal medical therapy (OMT) in patients with stable ischemic heart disease. However, the ISCHEMIA trial results might stem fro...

ConclusionEmergent pediatric cardiac CT angiography is a valuable service. Larger multi-institutional studies with standardized referral and utilization patterns are needed to determine if outcomes are affected by this service, which in turn will influence hospital staffing patterns for emergent imaging.

AbstractCoronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is one of the most common procedures in the United States as many Americans suffer from coronary heart disease and undergo CABG each year. While CABG has been performed for decades, questions remain regarding the benefits graft marker placement provides for patient therapy and outcomes. Markers at the proximal graft anastomosis aim to improve the efficiency and reduce the risks of subsequent, post-coronary artery bypass grafting coronary angiography by decreasing fluoroscopy time and contrast volume used. Graft markers have been shown to reduce fluoroscopy time and contrast vo...

, Schreiber L, Quantitative Cardiac Imaging Study Group Abstract Cardiac imaging has a pivotal role in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of ischaemic heart disease. SPECT is most commonly used for clinical myocardial perfusion imaging, whereas PET is the clinical reference standard for the quantification of myocardial perfusion. MRI does not involve exposure to ionizing radiation, similar to echocardiography, which can be performed at the bedside. CT perfusion imaging is not frequently used but CT offers coronary angiography data, and invasive catheter-based methods can measure coronary flow and pressure. Te...
