Georgia Institute of Technology A study of 338 patients with coronary artery disease has identified a gene expression profile associated with an elevated risk of cardiovascular death. Used with other indicators such as biochemical markers and family history, the profile – based on a simple blood test – may help identify patients who could benefit from personalized treatment and counseling designed to address risk factors. Researchers found the risk signature by comparing gene...

Echocardiogram
2013-07-29 11:11:00

An echocardiogram is a test that, much like an ultrasound, uses sound waves to create a moving image of the heart. The most common type of echocardiogram is performed transthoracic, meaning the image is taken through a probe against the chest. A TTE does not involve radiation and is a very safe procedure. A cardiac sonographer will put a gel on the patient's chest and move the transducer around different areas, including directly anterior to the breastbone, inferior and lateral to the right...

Coronary Angiography
2013-07-29 11:05:01

A coronary angiography, also known as a coronary catheterization, is a procedure that gives both visual and tactical access to coronary circulation and blood filled chambers of the heart for both diagnostic and interventional purposes. It is one of many diagnostic tests used in cardiology. More specifically, coronary catheterization recognizes occlusion, stenosis, thrombosis or aneurismal enlargement of the walls of the coronary arteries; heart chamber size; heart muscle contraction...

Cardiac Stress Test
2012-11-18 19:30:13

The cardiac stress test is a diagnostic test used in Cardiac pathology for the purpose of patient diagnosis. It measures the heart’s function while placing a heavier workload on the heart. The cardiologist cannot be at the patient’s side while at work, under stress, during a workout or pushed to the limit so this test mimics those activities in a controlled setting. How it is Performed The stress is created by increasing the workload on the cardiac system. This can be accomplished by...
