Track:7 Cardiac Diagnostic Test
Cardiac Diagnostic test 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:
- Coronary Arteriogram
- Positron Emission Tomography
- Thallium Scans or Myocardial Perfusion Scans
- Electrophysiology Study
- Cardiac Catheterization
- Troponin-blood test
Troponin blood tests are widely used to help physicians detect heart attacks, test looks at a protein that comes directly from the heart and is found at elevated levels in the blood after heart muscle has been injured. As healthcare systems make a shift from treating symptoms of heart disease to preventing the onset of it, research now indicates that measuring a person's troponin levels using Abbott's High Sensitive Troponin-I blood test also can help predict a person's chances of having a cardiac event potentially years in advance when they show no signs or symptoms.

Track: 10 Cardiovascular Imaging-MRI, CT, Nuclear Medicine
Cardiovascular imaging- 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.

Growth of Cardiology Market:-
The Czech Republic also has some of the worst mortality figures for heart disease (IHD) and stroke (cerebrovascular accident or CVA). Death rates from heart disease are 260.4 per 100,000 populations & for stroke, the rate is 106.4 per 100,000 populations. The Czech Republic has more than halved its rate of case fatality after a heart attack, from 15% in 2001 to 6% in 2011.The prevalence of chronic heart disease among type 2 diabetes patients has fallen, from 40% in 2001 to below 30% in 2008. The country also has lower hospital admission rates for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The Czech Republic has initiated screening of blood pressure, cholesterol and other cardiovascular risk factors. But the cost-effectiveness of this programmer needs to be evaluated.
At the end of 1980s, the rapid transition from socialists economic to market economic caused further divergence in mortality. While in some countries like in Czech, rapid improvement in health condition were recorded and belatedly cardiovascular revolution took place. Since 1990s, among the Czech population, many changes and enormous improvements in cardiovascular health have occurred and resulted in more than 50% decline of CVD mortality rates; both due to changes in lifestyle, subsequent decrease in prevalence of risk factors and due to changes in healthcare. This trend diverted Czech from most of the Eastern European countries closer to Western European countries; however, the east–west mortality gap still persists in the case of CVDs.
It is mainly the mortality due to ischemic heart disease (IHD) (International Classification of Diseases which causes the differences. The level of IHD mortality in Czech (standardized death rate (SDR) in 2014 was 199 per 100 000 males, 115 per 100 000 females) is more than two times higher than in the European Union (EU) (SDR in 2014 was 96 per 100 000 males, 47 per 100 000 females). On contrary, the level of mortality due to stroke in Czech (SDR in 2014 was 61 per 100 000 males, 48 per 100 000 females) is only about 25% higher than in EU (SDR in 2014 was 49 per 100 000 males, 39 per 100 000 females). While the countries of Western Europe have passed the stage of cardiovascular revolution, the Czech population still remains far from having a ‘healthy lifestyle’, mainly due to a diet rich in saturated fat and salt and poor in fruit and vegetable intake, lack of physical activity leading to overweight and the prevalence of diabetes. Changes in the lifestyle of the Czech population are very slow compared with the extraordinary improvements in healthcare made during the 1990s.
