Media Outlets Highlight New Study Led by Dr. Anjali Vaidya on Virtual Screening Tool That Simplifies Process of Diagnosing Pulmonary Hypertension

View All News

Anjali Vaidya, MD, FACC, FASE, FACP, Co-Director of the Pulmonary Hypertension, Right Heart Failure & CTEPH Program and Associate Program Director of the Cardiology Fellowship at Temple University Hospital and Associate Professor of Medicine at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, is lead author on a new study published online in the journal Pulmonary Circulation about a virtual screening tool for pulmonary hypertension. The new tool, known as the Virtual Echocardiography Screening Tool (VEST), uses initial data from echocardiography, which captures images of the heart, and accurately and remotely diagnoses pulmonary hypertension based on a simple analysis of multiple echocardiogram features – a major advance in virtual patient care, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. News-Medical.net, Scienmag, Medical Xpress, and other outlets highlighted the study.
