It underlines the Spanish Cardiology Association (SEC) in the XXXVIII Congress of cardiovascular imaging, in order to detect the presence of arterial calcium as a "first-rate imaging technique" for the CT cardiol. atherosclerosis.
The Image Diagnostic Technique has been aiming to detect and quantify coronary gradations in recent years as an atherosclerosis and severity marker.
Although coronary calcifications prevent the proper coronary arterial evaluation, new calcium CT calcium techniques allow removal of calcium in the image, and thus, if an important coronary disorder is analyzed; , a significant reduction in the calibration of the coronary artery that may cause ischaemia, "explained Dr. Teresa Lopez, Sec Section of the Section Image.
In previously infected patients, with more or less calcium, it is not changing the prevention strategy in the field of cardiovascular risk control.
However, "known ischemic illnesses, without diabetes or without severe renal impairment, the detection of coronary calcium involves the need to optimize the control of cardiovascular risk stratification and cardiovascular risk," said the expert.
Patients with the greatest influence on this technique have symptoms that are suggestive of ischemia, because they are not known or unknown for ischemia detection.
On the other hand, Dr. David Viladés considers CT to be an excellent technique for studying atypical heart, for the diagnosis of previously unexplored heart histories and for patients with analog or electrocardiographic changes. "In addition, in patients with recovered stents or bypasses, this technique provides useful information," he added.
In recent years, CT heart can detect the presence of coronary problems for the entire technique that provides anatomical and functional research.
Cardiovascular magnetic resonance, echocardiography of stress or SPECT or single-photon emission estimation tomography are non-invasive functional techniques to detect the presence of advanced stages of atherosclerosis by means of cardiac muscle irrigation. Doctor Valdés.
On Saturday, Saturday, there will be non-coronary interventions, cardiovascular risk or cardiothecactology, among others.
The scientific program includes session updates, updates and discussion boards, congresses, clinical cases and posters, "creating a unique debate environment, which will also include the technical image of the practical aspects to update the echocardiography," according to the SEC.
