Eindhoven researchers develop patient-friendly method to determine severity of heart failure

Eindhoven researchers develop patient-friendly method to determine severity of heart failure

Methods currently employed to determine the severity of a heart failure are very limited. Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology and the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven have therefore developed a method that is very quick, non-invasive, cost-effective and can be performed at the hospital bedside.

New report examines how public perceives role and responsibility of radiologists

New report examines how public perceives role and responsibility of radiologists

When it comes to visibility, radiologists, in many cases, are out of sight. They often receive and interpret images from afar, leaving a patient's referring physician or specialist to disclose the findings -- and, using the information supplied, answer questions about the diagnosis. [More]
