Advances in the Diagnosis of Primary Aldosteronism
This video is primarily intended for physicians responsible for diagnosing patients with primary aldosteronism. Endocrine Society guidelines recommend a multi-tiered approach with both screening and provocative confirmatory testing for the diagnosis of primary aldosteronism. In this webinar, the presenters discuss the updates to the Endocrine Society practice guidelines for the management of primary aldosteronism and present data from a large study assessing the diagnostic accuracy of different renin assays to predict primary aldosteronism in hypertensive patients.

Development of AVS Support System for Primary Aldosteronism
Using a combination of diagnostic imaging technology and measurement technology for component analysis, the AVS support system enables faster and more accurate diagnostic capabilities. The ability to determine, on-the-spot from a localization diagnosis, where the problem is located in the adrenal vein will lead to less invasive treatments in the future.
