About this event

This public lecture will be delivered by Professor Gerry McCann, NIHR Research Professor, Professor of Cardiac Imaging and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist, at the University of Leicester, on Tuesday 9 November 2021. The talk will discuss early heart failure and detecting this in people with Type 2 Diabetes.

Type 2 Diabetes is increasing dramatically and is closely linked to obesity and sedentary lifestyle. Although complications of heart attack and stroke related to diabetes are well known, heart failure is becoming the commonest and most deadly complication of diabetes.

During this lecture Professor McCann will discuss how we may be able to detect early signs of heart failure in patients with diabetes using imaging tests such as MRI and possible strategies to prevent and treat heart failure.
