Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in many developed countries and remains one of the major diseases strongly affected by the diet. Nutrition can affect CVD directly by contributing to the accumulation of vascular plaques and indirectly by regulating the rate of aging. Consumption of ultra-processed foods worldwide has increased substantially, studies have shown that higher consumption of ultra-processed foods was associated with higher risks of cardiovascular, coronary heart, and cerebrovascular diseases. Recent study found that eating more plant-based foods reduces the risk of heart failure by 40%, while another one found that a vegetarian diet cuts the risk of heart disease death.

Researchers are welcome to present their observation and advice which can reduce risk and preventive factors in the development and prevention of CVD.

It is the process to understand the complexity of disease, injury and abnormalities. The rising demand for efficient and rapid diagnostics of cardiovascular diseases, Cardiac Biomarker Testing is leading the market and expected to reach $16.2 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 11.4% CAGR during the forecast period. Cardiac biomarkers are the substances released into the blood stream from the damaged muscle of the heart. These biomarkers are used to diagnose heart functioning, risk stratifications, and cardiac diseases in patients. The other diagnostic tests that are being used to further understand and identify cardiovascular disease are:

  • Electrocardiogram
  • Echocardiogram
  • Coronary Arteriogram
  • Positron Emission Tomography
  • Thallium Scans or Myocardial Perfusion Scans

MRI can be used to measure how the heart uses oxygen for both healthy patients and those with heart disease. Currently, the diagnostic tests available to measure blood flow to the heart require injection of radioactive chemicals or contrast agents that change the MRI signal and detect the presence of disease.

We would like to welcome the researchers to bring out the new advance methods where MRI does not require needles and chemicals being injected into the body.

Cardiac nuclear medicine is useful in diagnosing and assessing coronary artery disease. It is also used to evaluate cardiomyopathy and identify possible damage to the heart from chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Nuclear medicine examinations provide unique information including details on the function and anatomy of structures that is often unattainable using other imaging procedures. Nuclear medicine procedures can be time consuming. It can take several hours to days for the radiotracer to accumulate in the area of interest, and imaging may take up to several hours to perform.

Further, Cardiovascular computed tomography (CCT) is a proven clinical utility in the diagnosis and management of coronary artery disease, in guiding structural heart disease intervention, and in the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease.

As we know technology is changing rapidly in the field of healthcare leading to advancement in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with possible cardiovascular disease, our aim is to bring together experts to provide interactive session and networking.
