  • Risk prediction for adverse events in atrial fibrillation is changing, and new data is emerging that better control of cardiometabolic risk factors may reduce risks in atrial fibrillation.
  • Emerging imaging technologies are changing the manner in which we are assessing patients for ischemic coronary artery disease.  Updating and enhancing our knowledge in how to choose the best tests for individual patients is important for high quality care.
