What are the indications for cardiac CT angiography in the evaluation of coronary artery disease?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA) may be considered in the evaluation of symptomatic patients with intermediate pretest probability of coronary artery disease (CAD) and without previous revascularization, if stress testing cannot be performed or is inconclusive. (SOR B, based on a systematic review of conflicting evidence.) CCTA may also be useful in the immediate evaluation of patients presenting to the emergency department with acute chest pain who have negative biomarkers and are at low to intermediate cardiac risk. (SOR A, based on a meta-analysis.)
