Contributions written both by statisticians and medical doctors
Statistical analysis of large clinical and administrative databases
Development of innovative diagnostic and imaging techniques for the early identification of patients at major risk
This book collects several contributions, written both by statisticians and medical doctors, which focus on the identification of new diagnostic, therapeutic and organizational strategies in order to improve the occurrence of clinical outcomes for Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) patients. The work is structured in two different parts: the first one is focused on cooperative project mainly on statistical analysis of large clinical and administrative databases; the second one faces the development of innovative diagnostic techniques, with specific reference to genetic and proteomic, and the evolution of new imaging techniques for the early identification of patients at major risk of thrombotic, arrhythmic complications and at risk of poor revascularization.
