Study examines focused US in cardiac death risk screening


A study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology found that the use of focused ultrasound is promising for pre-participation screening of athletes for sudden cardiac death risk factors, yielding higher sensitivity compared with using a standardized family and medical history collection and a similar model with the addition of stress electrocardiogram and resting. "Pre-participation screening with focused cardiac ultrasound exhibited the highest cost-effectiveness per sudden cardiac death diagnosis," the authors wrote. Healio (free registration) (9/20)
