Abstract

Obese Patients: The Most Prone to Heart Disease, Yet the Least Benefiting from Cardiac Imaging and Treatment Technology

Most hospitals in the United States have neither the facilities nor the equipment to accommodate obese patients. This makes adequate care difficult to offer in some cases.
