Angina test reduces hospital visits

A 40-minute test for angina could help patients avoid an overnight stay in hospital, according to our research.

 

An international trial by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Biomedical Research Centre found MRI scans could guide treatment decisions for angina patients. In many cases, this meant patients didn’t need a more invasive procedure, involving multiple hospital visits and an overnight stay.

 

Professor Eike Nagel, a consultant cardiologist who led the research, says: “Personalising patients’ treatment for angina will mean that we can target the more invasive treatments only to those patients that really need them.”
