Information generated about this interdisciplinary consensus on the diagnosis of myocardial ischemia for the public based on a publication of the QCI study group led by Charité in Nature Reviews Cardiology. Details on the outreach of this activity as measured by Altmetric can be found here.


When the diagnostic accuracy of coronary CT angiography matches that of catheter angiography

12. June 2019

Coronary CT angiography generates thousands of X-ray images which are used to generate a 3D representation of the heart. This allows the visualization of narrowed (arrow) blood vessels (grey).

CT or Catheterization for Chest Pain Patients?

24. October 2016

2 min summary video summarizing answers to this clinical question for practice partners in imaging and cardiac medicine can be found here.

 

The first randomized study of CT versus catheterization was just published in BMJ. This summary shows which advantages CT has in patients with atypical chest pain. Details on the outreach of this activity as measured by Altmetric can be found here.

Comprehensive Cardiac Diagnosis for Patients with Coronary Stents

15. October 2013

Coronary in-stent restenosis in CTA (A) with myocardial perfusion reduction in CT (B). From JACC.

The combination of myocardial perfusion and coronary CT imaging improves diagnosis for patients with coronary stents while it does not lead to higher radiation dose to patients than invasive procedures as shown in a study published in JACC by Charité researchers. Information generated about this research finding for the public in German can be found here. Details on the outreach of this activity as measured by PlumX can be found here.

Patient Forum in the Maxim Gorki Theater

October 21, 2012, Maxim Gorki Theater

Patient Forum on cardiac diseases and diagnostic imaging with Marc Dewey under the title ‘Kosmos und Mensch: der schonende Blick ins Herz’ in a collaboration of Maxim Gorki Theater with Charité. Moderation of the event was by Ingo Hoppe from rbb88acht. Further information about the event in German can be found here.


Which Test for Cardiac Function?

May 2012

Three-dimensional analysis of cardiac function by CT in diastole (left) and systole (right). From JACC.

Many tests are available to evaluate cardiac function, yet which is best? This study published in JACC by Charité researchers compared CT, Catheterization, Echocardiography in 2D and 3D and MRI for cardiac function. It was shown that CT was as accurate as MRI for cardiac function assessment, which has relevant implications for clinical practice and patients with suspected or known cardiac diseases. Information generated about this research finding for the public can be found here. Details on the outreach of this activity as measured by Altmetric can be found here.


CT as an Alternative for Heart Catheterisation

December 2011

A TV special on Sunday 11 December 2011 from the popular show “RATGEBER GESUNDHEIT” from the First German TV Program ARD about CT as an alternative to cardiac catheterisaiton can be viewed here.



Heart Catheter, Too Much Invasive Procedures?

March 2011

On Tuesday 22nd of March 2011 a special report on the TV show VISITE of the regional broadcasting company NDR discussed why there is too many cardiac catheterisations performed in Germany. The TV special report can be watched here.


Charité Publishes Landmark Study on 320-Row CT

August 2009

Advantage of improved coverage of the heart using 320-row CT from the study published in Circulation.

CT showed high accuracy and reduced radiation dose as well as improved patient comfort compared with invasive cardiac catheterization using this technology which was first provided worldwide to Charité outside of Japan by Toshiba Medical Systems (now: Canon Medical Systems). Further information for German patients and journalists can be found here. Details on the outreach of this activity as measured by Altmetric can be found here.
