After ISCHEMIA: Is cardiac MRI a  reliable gatekeeper for invasive angiography and myocardial revascularization?

In conclusion, the results of the ISCHEMIA trial are in good accordance with those of the MR-INFORM trial recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, as the noninvasive management of a large proportion of patients with CAD was shown to be noninferior to current invasive strategies. Recent outcome data from trials may therefore have an impact on future guidelines to further reduce the execution of unnecessary left heart catheterizations.

Has anyone tried using the Butterly IQ ultrasound probe to perform nerve blocks or joint injections? I have done shoulder and hip joint injections using this probe, and while the anatomy showed up reasonably well, the needle (a regular BBraun 22g spinal needle) did not. I was able to get the injections done, but I am not sure how useful this device is for anything besides scanning. Anyone else have any thoughts on this probe for regional blocks and/or interventional procedures?
