MRI Identifies Patients at Higher Risk for Cardiac Sarcoidosis-Related Adverse Outcomes

Researchers have found that patients with certain features on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the heart are at much higher risk for cardiac sarcoidosis-related adverse outcomes. More...

Troponin Testing Could Improve Timing of Heart Surgery and Survival Rate

A new study has found that some patients who have lower levels of troponin would benefit from having earlier surgery, although patients with very high troponin levels should have surgery postponed, as their risk of dying was higher if surgery was performed within 10 days of their heart attack.

New Guidance Recommends Coronary CTA as First-Line Test when Treating Acute Chest Pain in ED

The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT, Arlington, VA, USA) has released an expert consensus document detailing standards of practice for coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) use for patients presenting with acute chest pain (ACP) to the emergency department. The document outlines the benefits of CCTA as the first-line test for ACP and provides recommendations for appropriate patient selection, preparation, protocol selection, interpretation, reporting and patient management based on clinical evidence and expert consensus.

Diagnostic Blood Test More than Halves Hospital Length of Stay for Heart Failure Patients

Effective management of patients hospitalized for heart failure remains problematic despite advances in medical therapy. Now, new data has validated the benefits of a diagnostic blood test in reducing hospital length of stay (LOS) for heart failure patients. More...

Ultraflexible, Gas-Permeable Thermistors to Pave Way for On-Skin Medical Sensors and Implantable Devices

Researchers have demonstrated how an important component of on-skin medical sensors called a thermistor can be constructed using an ultrathin fiber-mesh, paving the way for ultraflexible and gas-permeable thermistors that can act as overheat prevention components for on-skin or implantable devices.

Fecal Transplant by Capsule as Effective as Colonoscopy for CDI

Researchers have found that Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) using capsules containing freeze-dried microbes taken orally has similar safety and effectiveness to colonoscopic administration of liquid FMT for treating recurrent Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI). More...

AI-Aided MRI Provides Cost-Effective Alternative to Painful, Invasive Liver Biopsies

A new study has shown that an AI-enhanced, noninvasive liver health diagnostic tool can be a cost-effective alternative to painful, invasive liver biopsies for monitoring disease activity and treatment response in patients with autoimmune hepatitis. More...
