Until now, catheter-based coronary angiography was considered state-of-the-art for the diagnosis of coronary heart disease. Yet this method is not without risk, after all it is an invasive procedure.

Cardiology – viewing the beating heart in real-time

To examine the heart with a magnetic resonance imaging system, patients need to hold their breath. Only this way, physicians can get clear pictures. The University Medical Center of Göttingen, Germany, has now succeeded to take pictures of the heart in real-time. The exam only takes a few seconds and patients can breathe freely.

Hemodialysis: Creating the AV fistula using catheters
