Case 1 65 yr male 3 weeks of SOB and chest pain Admitted with trop positive acute coronary syndrome Angiogram: severe three vessel disease very poor left ventricular function Usual management: Too high risk for surgery with damaged heart so medical treatment with poor prognosis Management at Cardiac MRI: Showed poor function but myocardium is still alive and highly likely to recover Change in management following MRI: Accepted for bypass surgery with good prognosis Another patient showing white area of dead heart muscle
Case 2 70 yr old male Sudden onset troponin positive of chest pain Angiogram: Severe narrowings in all three main vessels Usual treatment: Try to stent all three vessels [putting patient at risk of prolonged procedure plus requiring at least 2 guides, 2 wires, several balloons, 6 stents (£800 each)] Cardiac MRI: Left coronary territory dead so no need to treat Right coronary territory gets blood from circumflex so no need to treat Circumflex territory alive and important so treat Management change after MRI: Only treat one vessel with one stent Narrowing before No narrowing after x1 stent Blocked artery Narrow Management at
Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging at Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust Patient benefits: Better care Best information Massive impact on management Safe Non-invasive No radiation Trust benefits: Better care Comply with NICE Reduce nuclear wait Regional referral income Regional Research centre Regional Training centre Financial benefits: Save unnecessary revascularization Save diagnostic duplication Save unnecessary wait for + cost of CABG Income generator Do you need cardiac MRI ?
