Fusing Imaging Technologies Helps Heart Disease Diagnostics

June 5, 2007 - To fight heart disease, you have to get to the heart of the problem by diagnosing it more accurately. Researchers did just that, releasing their findings at SNM’s 54th Annual Meeting June 2–6 in Washington, D.C. SNM is the world’s largest society for molecular imaging and nuclear medicine professionals.
“By combining the physiological (or functional) images of the blood flow to the heart muscle at stress and at rest with the high-resolution anatomical depiction of coronary arteries and their blockages, we can determine the diagnosis of coronary artery disease more accurately,” explained Piotr Slomka, a research scientist with the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Program at the departments of Medicine and Imaging at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.
