Noninvasive imaging has benefited from technical advances that might allow it to play a pivotal role in cardiovascular diagnosis and patient management. Most notably, advanced imaging modalities have great potential for noninvasive characterization of coronary atherosclerosis as well as quantification of myocardial perfusion.
Motivating national and international collaboration is one of the central aims of our working group. We have initiated two international multicontinental consortia that perform exciting research on cardiovascular imaging in patients with suspected coronary artery disease (COME-CCT) and patients who already have coronary stents (COME-CSI).Very recently, Marc Dewey’s working group received an EU Framework grant for the DISCHARGE project. This group of 30 academic partners from 18 countries is coordinated by Marc Dewey and will allow the investigators to raise awareness among patients, health care providers, and decision-makers about the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of coronary CT angiography.
