International Day of Radiology: Cardiac Imaging Article Collection

International Day of Radiology

On November 8, radiologists, radiographers, radiological technologists and professionals from related fields all over the world will celebrate the seventh International Day of Radiology (IDoR 2018). The day is led by the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR).

Cardiac imaging has been chosen as the main theme of the day, to highlight the essential role that imaging professionals play in the detection, diagnosis and management of cardiac diseases, increasing the quality of care and treatment of patients. On this page, we present a collection of articles showcasing recent research in cardiac imaging.

Read an Academic Radiology article by Kimberly Kallianos et al. that investigates the feasibility of detecting left ventricular cardiac magnetic resonance strain abnormalities using feature-tracking in patients with pulmonary hypertension. Or the results of a multi-reader study in Clinical Imaging which sought to determine the value of ultra-low dose chest CT at 0.13 mSv for coronary artery calcium risk elimination. Authors from Poland and the UK assess the accuracy of simple cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging parameters for first-line analysis of right ventricle dysfunction in children in a Clinical Radiology paper. And, authors in a European Journal of Radiology article perform external validation in a Scottish population to assess the applicability and validity of a previously developed risk score in other populations determining 5-year cardiovascular disease risk using routine care CT and patient information readily available to radiologists.

You can find out more about these studies and others in our special International Day of Radiology: Cardiac Imaging Article Collection, which is free to access online until 31 December 2018.
