Mayo Clinic researchers report today in JAMA that adding this procedure is likely the right choice for certain patients but not all.

The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
