CMR for Prognosis Assessment in NSTEMI

2018-05-13 16:17:12 | BioPortfolio


The prognostic significance of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) derived parameters of myocardial and microvascular injury has not been fully elucidated yet in non-ST-Elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients. In the present study the investigators aim to comprehensively investigate the prognostic significance of CMR in a prospective, multicentre registry cohort of NSTEMI patients undergoing early percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). CMR will be performed within the first week following the index event. The primary endpoint is defined as a composite of death, reinfarction, and new congestive heart failure (major adverse cardiac events) at 12 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.
