  • Cardiology
  • In any event, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) have joined to create specifications on how angiography should be used. (encyclopedia.com)
  • A report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines (Committee on Coronary Angiography). (springer.com)
  • Clinical trials incorporating quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) have made a significant impact on the practice of interventional cardiology. (ahajournals.org)
  • Scanlon PJ, Faxon DP, Audet AM, Carabello B, Dehmer GJ, Eagle KA (1999) ACC/AHA guidelines for coronary angiography: a report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines (Committee on Coronary Angiography). (springer.com)
  • Current implementations for Cardiology uses are sometimes limited by lengthy protocols, claustrophobia and contraindications based on some complex metallic implants (pacemakers, defibrillators, insulin pumps), while artificial valves and coronary stents are generally not problematic.

  • Coronary Angiography, Interventional Cardiology and Cardiac surgery amongst other facilities are on the horizon. (wikipedia.org)
  • contrast
  • The x-ray energies and intensity are those required for the dual-energy digital subtraction technique to enhance the image contrast of the coronary arteries following venous injection of an iodinated contrast agent. (esrf.eu)
  • The dilution of the contrast agent prior to arrival in the coronary arteries, the background in the ventricles and the pulmonary veins, and the motion of the heart all present problems which are effectively solved by this technique. (esrf.eu)
  • To make it possible to do angiography and surgery on the same day and largely diminish the possibility of renal failure, Mayo physicians use other contrast agents. (eurekalert.org)
  • Visipaque is commonly used as a contrast agent during coronary angiography. (wikipedia.org)
  • CT angiography is a contrast CT where images taken with a certain delay after injection of radiocontrast to result in a high radiodensity within the blood vessels of interest. (wikipedia.org)
  • A typical coronary CT calcium scan is done without the use of radiocontrast, but it can possibly be done from contrast-enhanced images as well, such as in coronary CT angiography. (wikipedia.org)
  • Until that time, it was believed that even a small amount of contrast agent within a coronary artery would be fatal. (wikipedia.org)
