Predictive value of electron beam computed tomography
of the coronary arteries: 19 month follow-up of 1173 asymptomatic subjects.
Professor of Medicine at the Mayo Clinic and Foundation in Rochester, Minnesota, said, "This study provides for considerable optimism in projecting the use of coronary artery scanning using electron beam computed tomography
as a means to predict who may be likely to have a premature cardiac event.
Whether we're marketing interventional cardiology innovations to key influencers, virtual colonoscopy to consumers or electron beam computed tomography
(EBCT) and conventional CT scans to physicians, our clients don't have to spend their valuable time teaching the agency the basics of health care and retail medicine marketing.
By capturing the smallest coronary details, the Aquilion, in conjunction with the Vitrea II workstation by Vital Images, also performs effective coronary artery calcification scoring (CACS) studies that are comparable to those of the electron beam computed tomography
(EBCT) technology in the early detection of heart disease.
Raggi and fellow-investigators answered the request of the authors of the joint ACC/AHA Expert Consensus Document on Electron Beam Computed Tomography
for the Diagnosis and Prognosis of Coronary Artery Disease, to publish further research into the potential for using the EBT coronary artery scan as a cardiac diagnostic test.
