Title Description


Determining the mechanism of myocardial injury & role of coronary disease in type 2 Myocardial Infarction

  • Prospective observational study evaluating the mechanism of myocardial injury & the role of coronary artery disease in type 2 myocardial infarction.


Dual antiplatelet therapy to inhibit Atherosclerosis & Myocardial injury in patients with Necrotic high-risk coronary plaque Disease
  • Observational study assessing the prevalence of coronary artery disease & the pattern of myocardial injury in patients with Type 2 myocardial infarction

FAPI Fibrosis Study

  • Cardiovascular imaging study investigating the timing and pattern of myocardial fibrosis activity following acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction using hybrid 68Ga-FAPI positron emission tomography and cardiovascular magnetic resonance


Prediction of Recurrent Events with 18F-Fluoride to Identify Ruptured & High-risk Coronary Artery Plaques in Patients with Myocardial Infarction.

  • Observational study assessing whether 18F-fluoride PET can improve risk stratification of patients presenting with myocardial infarction
  • Computed tomography coronary angiography for the prevention of myocardial infarction.
