  • Carotid Ultrasound

    Carotid Ultrasound

    Carotid ultrasound is a valuable tool for measuring and tracking carotid plaque area over time. Dr. Spence outlines how 3D ultrasound methods are used to calculate plaque area, which is an important predictor of stroke, myocardial infarction and death, and to follow plaque progression or regression, which are critical treatment targets. Using this novel approach, Dr. Spence et al. have found that a change in therapeutic strategies, targeting the arteries and not LDL levels, has led to less disease progression in their test population despite a rise in mean patient age.

  • Imaging as a Biomarker in Cardiology: Cardiac CT

    Imaging as a Biomarker in Cardiology: Cardiac CT

    Following the mandate of an ancient Chinese medical writing, Dr. Chow describes how it should be the goal of researchers and clinicians to learn to treat disease prior to its clinical presentation. Dr. Chow and his colleagues take aim at this goal by introducing cardiac CT that is able to detect previously undiscovered obstructive coronary disease and its potential as a modality that can identify poor outcome. Taking this further, investigators have asked if poor outcomes can be averted by treating disease before the patient is symptomatic. Read More

  • Cardiac and Vascular Imaging

    Cardiac and Vascular Imaging

    Understanding the markers of atherosclerosis is pivitol to providing effective care and perhaps prevention of the disease in others. Currently, upwards of 50% of patients with atherosclerosis first present to clinical medicine after a critical event. Dr. Larsose describes what is currently known and what steps are being taken to understand important disease targets including effective characterization of plaque morphology. It is our goal to prove imaging as an invaluable tool in improving patient outcomes. Read More
  • Pathology of Atherosclerosis

    Pathology of Atherosclerosis

    A great primer in atheroma characterisation and processing, this video is recommended for all cardiac trainees. Dr. Hammond describes the workflow of how tissues become samples, then specimen slides and are digitized. Challenges in processing the endartarectomy specimens are discussed as well as how new technology is overcoming those challenges and making it possible to produce 3D stained specimens for pathological analysis.

  • Ultrasound Techniques for Carotid Imaging: 3D Ultrasound

    Ultrasound Techniques for Carotid Imaging: 3D Ultrasound

    Using specialized equipment and advanced software, Dr. Fenster et al. have extended 2 dimensional ultrasound images to 3 dimensional acquisition. Through further software development, it has been possible for his team to reconstruct and measure existing carotid plaque in real time, allowing for accurate mapping of plaque regression or progression over time. Looking forward, Dr. Fenster describes current programs attempting to semi-automate plaque tracing on images. Read More

    Molecular Imaging Probes: Discovery, Development and Manufacturing

    Taking novel imaging probes from discovery in a lab setting, through full development and on to manufacturing and clinical trials is one of the goals of the MITNEC program and the Centre for Probe Development and Commercialization. Dr. Valliant, the leader of the CPDC and a collaborator in MITNEC outlines each stage in this process, describing all of the steps involved. In particular, new probes in development for imaging neurologic disease are discussed. Read More
