Cardiovascular CT Will Play a Critical Role in Addressing Top Research Priorities Outlined by NHLBI
As part of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s (NHLBI) Strategic Vision, the institute recently unveiled its 8 key objectives and 132 top research priorities for guiding future directions in heart, lung, blood, and sleep research over the next decade. These research priorities will serve as a guide for resource allocation and will be regularly updated through ongoing engagement and iteration within the scientific community. Key themes include personalized precision medicine, early detection and disease prevention, elimination of health inequities, and leveraging the power of big data systems to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease.
Considering the robust data demonstrating its efficacy and precision, cardiovascular CT is an ideal tool for tackling many of NHLBI’s top research priorities, including compelling questions related to the pathophysiology of atherosclerotic heart disease, and addressing critical challenges in population health.
Examples of NHLBI priorities where cardiovascular CT may play an important role include:
