Hi-tech scan that can spot risk of a heart attack up to TEN YEARS in advance could be available on NHS within two years
A high-tech heart scan developed by Oxford scientists can spot the risk of a heart attack nearly a decade in advance.
The new technology – which has received Government funding to fast track it into the NHS within two years – predicts heart risk with 90 per cent accuracy, according to data presented at the European Society of Cardiology congress in Paris. The breakthrough could save thousands of lives a year by spotting at-risk patients whose heart problems cannot be detected using current scanning methods.
