2D CPA for predicting sudden cardiac death - The more you see, the more you save?

Heart attacks may cause scars and the presence of scar tissue raises the risk for dangerously fast heart rhythms and sudden cardiac death. This seems to be a simple enough chain of events, but it presents a tricky problem in routine clinical assessment. (...)

 

Key messages

Strain technology has improved to a point where strain can be analyzed in over 90 percent of cases
