10-Minute Scan Enables Detection and Cure of Common Cause of High Blood Pressure

Doctors at Queen Mary University of London, Bart’s Hospital, and Cambridge University Hospital have developed a new CT scan to detect hormone-producing nodules in a gland, which is found in one-in-twenty people with high blood pressure. The research has been published in the journal Nature Medicine and solves a 60-year-old problem of detecting nodules without a difficult catheter study. The scan, when combined with a urine test, detects a group of patients who can stop all their blood pressure medicines after treatment
