|Stress Evaluation using Functional MRI in patients with Coronary Artery Disease|
Emotional stress is discussed as an independent risk factor of Coronary Artery Disease. Previously, cardiovascular stress responses have been extensively studied in animal and human researches. But the mechanisms of stress influence to CAD development remain unclear.
Functional MRI provides technical instruments to study neuronal activation during stress.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the brain activation zones using fMRI in response to electrical stress stimulation in patients with CAD and healthy volunteers.
