Heart disease detection improved
(NET Radio) - Researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center are developing a more reliable way of detecting heart disease in patients who have diabetes, but who do not show the symptoms of the disease. It's done through the use of what are called microbubbles. The microscopic-sized bubbles are injected into the blood to look at blood flow through the heart muscle in real time. That's on top of the traditional echo stress tests that use ultrasound to detect blocked or narrowed arteries in the heart. © Copyright 2017, NET Radio
