Prognostic Value of Computed Tomography (CT) Scan in Hemodynamically Stable Patients With Acute Symptomatic Pulmonary Embolism

The objectives of the PROTECT study are: - To assess the role of CT pulmonary angiography in the risk stratification of hemodynamically stable patients with acute symptomatic pulm...

Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacodynamic Activity of Sotagliflozin in Hemodynamically Stable Patients Hospitalized With Worsening Heart Failure

Primary Objectives: - Assess the safety and tolerability of sotagliflozin in hemodynamically stable patients hospitalized for worsening of heart failure. - Estimate the ...

A Hemodynamically Oriented Echocardiography-Based Strategy in the Treatment of Congestive Heart Failure

The purpose of this study was to compare two strategies in the treatment of outpatients with heart failure. We hypothesized that an individualized treatment strategy based on the availabil...

Non-Invasive Diagnosis of Coronary Artery Stenoses by Doppler Echocardiography

Non-invasive evaluation of patients with stable angina and unstable coronary syndromes with transthoracic Doppler echocardiography to evaluate presence of significant coronary stenoses. Bl...

The Usefulness of the HyperQ Stress System in Routine Annual Screening Testing

The main objective of this study is to compare the sensitivity and specificity of a new system for analyzing the electrocardiogram (ECG) to the sensitivity and specificity of a conservativ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

Diagnostic procedures, such as laboratory tests and x-rays, routinely performed on all individuals or specified categories of individuals in a specified situation, e.g., patients being admitted to the hospital. These include routine tests administered to neonates.

Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image.

Dynamic three-dimensional echocardiography using the added dimension of time to impart the cinematic perception of motion. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with velocity detection combined with range discrimination. Short bursts of ultrasound are transmitted at regular intervals and the echoes are demodulated as they return.
