Medical and radiographic staff from the Chenies Mews Imaging Centre have contributed to a project which has been awarded 2nd place in the category of ‘Best Oral Abstracts’ at the recent EuroCMR conference held in Prague, Czech Republic.

The INCA-Peru study, which was led by Dr Katia Menacho of University College London, developed a faster and cheaper cardiac imaging test that can be used in developing countries.  The results reported at last week’s conference have shown that the new scan was three times faster, less than one fifth of the cost, and changed clinical management in 33% of patients.

The study was an international academic and political collaboration between Peru, the UK, the USA and Brazil, with participants including Louise McGrath, the superintendent radiographer of the Chenies Mews Imaging Centre.

The study is discussed in more detail in this article published in the European Society of Cardiology.
