Brief description Cardiac imaging is widely used to guide cardiology treatments, especially in the cardiovascular disease epidemics of the elderly (atrial fibrillation, aortic stenosis and heart failure). However, despite the expenditure of ~$1 billion/year on cardiac imaging in Australia, there is little evidence of value. This Partnership seeks to link researchers with providers and imaging industry to provide data regarding appropriate use, quality control and integration of decision-making with imaging.
