The following transthoracic echocardiogram falsely indicated a diagnosis of prosthetic mitral valve thrombosis; subsequent review of the echocardiogram by an experienced echocardiologist revised the diagnosis to microbubbles formation phenomenon
Coronary Imaging
A 25-year-old man came to our clinic with complaints of exertional palpitations and dyspnea. He had skeletal features suggestive of Marfan’s syndrome.
Coronary Imaging
This study describes methods for crossing a severely stenotic aortic valve in light of modern imaging modalities (echocardiography, computed tomography, and fluoroscopy) and characterizes a successful crossing.
Coronary Imaging
We analyzed patient radiation dose in 1786 cardiac catheterization procedures (diagnostic coronary angiography and/or PCI) performed at a single tertiary-care center before and after x-ray system optimization.
Coronary Imaging
Radiopaque bypass graft markers allow easy visualization of the location of the graft and can minimize contrast use and radiation exposure during follow-up coronary angiography.
Coronary Imaging
A novel technique was used to eliminate the guidewire shadow artifact by removing the guidewire in frequent domain optical coherence tomography interpretation in vivo. This technique allowed us to observe a rare iatrogenic spiral dissection of the

A novel technique was used to eliminate the guidewire shadow artifact by removing the guidewire in frequent domain OCT interpretation in vivo. This technique allowed us to observe a rare iatrogenic spiral dissection of the radial artery caused by
Coronary Imaging
Purulent pericarditis is rare and usually associated with pneumonia, bacteremia, immunosuppression, and thoracic surgery. A timely diagnostic pericardiocentesis with dedicated maneuvers to improve the effectiveness of drainage and pericardial
Coronary Imaging
Historically, digital subtraction angiography (DSA) has been considered the gold standard for assessing arterial plaque morphology and vessel diameter. However, this modality provides a 2-D image of a 3-D luminal structure. Intravascular ultrasound
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), Coronary Imaging
The objective of this study was to determine whether anatomical features of the aortic valve and aorta visualized by CT are predictive parameters of stroke.
