This prevention-oriented research study can help identify children who may have undetected heart conditions that can lead to sudden cardiac death.
Too often, we hear about a young student athlete who collapses in the middle of a game or at a team practice as the result of an undetected heart condition that leads to sudden cardiac death.
The Center for Coronary Artery Anomalies at the Texas Heart Institute is doing breakthrough research on the prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death in young people and has partnered with Fort Bend ISD to provide a FREE MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) screening study to FBISD students in grades 5-8 during the 2011-2012 school year, whether they engage in organized sports or not.
Call The Center for Coronary Artery Anomalies at the Texas Heart Institute today at 713-218-2112 or email CCAA@texasheart.org to schedule a child for screening. Additional information is also available at www.texasheart.org/research/ccaa.
