MOUNT ROYAL, N.J., Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) member
"SPINS cohort is a retrospective observation study from 13 US cardiac MRI centers (9 AMC, 4 private practice) consisting of N=2,371 patients who underwent stress CMR scanning between Jan 1, 2008 through Dec 31, 2013 for evaluation of clinical signs and symptoms suspicious of cardiac ischemia," said lead investigator and presenter Dr. Kwong, "Patients overall had a 33% pretest likelihood of CAD by CAD consortium scores and 32% were found to have ischemia or myocardial infarction. All patients were aimed to have clinical follow-up of at least four years."
New real-world data evaluating the clinical impact of gadolinium-enhanced stress cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) perfusion imaging on more than 2,000 patients with suspected ischemia or CAD was presented as part of a Late Breaking Science Session on Saturday, August 25. The SPINS Registry was conducted by the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) and was presented by lead investigator Dr. Raymond Kwong.
"Stress CMR is an effective modality in the real-world setting in detecting patients at high risk of cardiac events," said Kwong. "In addition, preliminary costs analyses suggest its use may potentially reduce costs of downstream cardiac testing. Our evidence supports the expanded utilization of stress CMR in evaluation of chest pain syndromes in the United States."
The objectives of the study were to:
