Quidel Triage Cardiac Panel Facilitates Rapid POC Diagnosis of Chest Pain Patients in ED

A point-of-care (POC), serial multi-marker testing strategy has been shown to facilitate the rapid diagnosis and management of chest pain patients in the emergency department (ED). Quidel Corporation (San Diego, CA, USA) has developed the Triage Cardiac Panel for use in the ED that is FDA cleared to aid in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction. More...

New Arrhythmia Mapping Technology Could Increase Ablation Success Rates

Before an electrophysiologist can perform an ablation, they need to know precisely where in the heart the arrhythmia is coming from. Now, a new technology can accurately and noninvasively map atrial and ventricular heart arrhythmias in a matter of minutes. More...

MRI Superior to ECG for Diagnosing Heart Failure

A new study has shown how magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is superior to Echocardiography for diagnosing heart failure, as well as being a powerful tool to predict patient outcomes, including death. More...

AI Predicts Spinal Fractures in Cancer Patients Using CT/MRI Scans

As medicine continues to embrace machine learning, a new study suggests how scientists may use artificial intelligence (AI) to predict how cancer may affect the probability of fractures along the spinal column. More...

Unified Approach Could Prevent Unnecessary Blood Tests in PICU without Increasing Sepsis Risk

Researchers have developed and demonstrated the safety of a decision support program that appears to substantially reduce the number of blood draws in the PICU, and is likely to reduce antibiotic prescriptions without increasing the risk of sepsis. More...

AI-Enabled ECGs Can Identify Patients at Greater Risk of Stroke and Cognitive Decline

Artificial intelligence-enabled electrocardiography (ECG) was recently shown to identify the presence of brief episodes of atrial fibrillation, and the ability of an AI-enabled ECG algorithm to predict atrial fibrillation up to 10 years before clinical diagnosis has been confirmed in a population-based study.
