A fast MRI tech to revolutionize heart disease diagnostics

Spanish National Centre for Cardiovascular Research (CNIC)

A close to eight-year long collaboration between CNIC and Philips has yielded a technological development which will reduce the diagnostics time, and accessibility of nuclear resonance diagnostics for heart disease from up to an hour, to only one minute or less. This opens up the possibility to increase drastically the number of patients which can potentially be diagnosed by means of resonance techniques. In Spain, affected by a chronic problem of long waiting lists for disease diagnostics, this can prove a boon in the fight to increase diagnostics coverage and decrease waiting time for appropriate treatment.
