Radiology on the front lines

I am currently preparing to present two talks at the Ontario College of Family Physicians Annual Scientific Assembly in Toronto, on November 25th.

Choosing the optimal first-line drug for patients with hypertension must address a hierarchy of treatment goals...
It is as important to treat hypertension in older adults as it is in younger people.
Low bone mineral density (BMD) is associated with obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD); this article reviews several recent studies that have demonstrated the association.
Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies and observational studies have documented that statins reduce mortality and major cardiovascular events in high-risk persons with hypercholesterolemia.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is by the far the most common cardiac rhythm disturbance encountered in clinical practice.
The World Health Organization has named hypertension the leading risk for death globally in adults.
For those with persistent gait and upper limb deficits after stroke, it is difficult to obtain recovery of motor control and functional capability in response to standard care methods.
Orthostatic hypotension (OH), while not itself a disease, is an important physical finding in the setting of unexplained syncope or falls.
I had to acknowledge a few truths: cardiology is more popular than geriatrics, older patients have a high burden of CVS disease and need cardiologists, and most cardiologists see large numbers of older adults.
