In order to tailor cardiological treatment much more closely to the individual patient, scientists at the Clinic for Cardiology at Heidelberg University Hospital, Germany, are working to develop a digital twin of the heart.
Find out how digitalizing healthcare can support patient management along the clinical pathway. Follow the story of a patient who experienced shortness of breath and see how data integration, connectivity and collaboration support her doctors to deliver best outcomes from diagnosis to therapy and follow-up.
Learn how optimal imaging techniques can be used for complete revascularization in complex patients and how guidance tools can optimize coronary procedures (© Europa Group - Original recording at EuroPCR 2018).
Don’t have time to watch the full video on cryoballoon ablation for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation? See an excerpt where Markus Stühlinger, MD, performs ablation of the right superior pulmonary vein using a 3D overlay on live fluoroscopy. Take a look at his summary of the case.
Heart failure is a common and debilitating medical condition. In the general population, it contributes to increasing rates of mortality, partly because people are living longer. As part of its Act on Heart Failure initiative, Siemens Healthineers offers a dedicated consulting product for healthcare providers.
Thanks to high-sensitivity troponin I assays, new possibilities have emerged for quicker, more accurate diagnoses of myocardial infarction. Peter Kavsak, PhD talks about their potential to significantly impact patient care and protocols.
