Current Research on Cardiology
Advances in medicine means that if CHD is detected at an early stage it can be treated successfully to extend the survival rate. Successful treatment is more likely considered if the disease is detected at its earliest stage. Our current research focuses on the early detection of CHD in order to hold or reverse the progress of the disease. The ongoing research work includes the use of scanning of the heart in the early diagnosis of heart disease in diabetics, Development of Nuclear Cardiology techniques for the detection, Drug development and evaluation of treatments, Identification of novel biological markers to predict the presence of heart disease, Analysis of ethnic and socio-economic differences in heart disease.
