Recent developments in medical imaging, especially the modern CT scanner, now make it possible to make extremely accurate pictures of the human heart in less than one heartbeat. This non-invasive, non-expensive imaging method can produce an accurate picture of cardiovascular health. Heart disease kills more people each year than any other disease. We are presented with an interesting problem for medicine: should we all look to see how our own heart is doing? Is it beneficial to us? Can we afford to do this? Elliot McVeigh, PhD, Professor of Bioengineering at UC San Diego, investigates these questions and more. (#33717)
