This review summarizes key imaging studies that were presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2018 in Chicago related to the fields of nuclear cardiology (including single photon emission computed tomography and positron emission tomography), cardiac computed tomography, cardiac magnetic resonance, and echocardiography. The aim of this bird’s eye view is to inform readers of the various studies discussed at the meeting from these imaging modalities. While this review is directed to the benefit of those of us who were not able to attend the conference, we find that a general overview may also be useful to those that did since it is often difficult to get exposure to all abstracts at large meetings. Further, we hope that the presentation of multiple imaging studies in a single synthesized review will stimulate new ideas for future research in imaging.
