Cardiac MRI key diagnostic tool in suspected cardiac tumour, predictive of prognosis 18/10/2021

Cardiac MRI key diagnostic tool in suspected cardiac tumour, predictive of prognosis.

This research by Shenoy et al included 903 individuals undergoing CMRI for suspected cardiac tumour.
The cardiac MRI diagnosis of 'no mass' was made for 25% of the cohort, 'pseudomass' for 16%, thrombus for 16%, 'benign tumour' for 17%, and 'malignant tumour' for 23%. The MRI diagnosis was accurate in 98.4% of patients.

Reducing barriers to MRI in patients with CIEDs 29/09/2021

Many cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are not approved by regulators for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which makes patient access to MRI challenging, but there is no evidence of increased clinical risk. It is estimated that patients have a 50–75% probability of requiring an MRI during the lifetime of the device.This
