ED-Ordered CTA and Significant Incidental Findings
Computed tomography angiography may show significant incidental findings that ED physicians should act upon.
Cardiac CT Can Cause Cellular Damage
Doses over 7.5 mSv of radiation from cardiac CTA cause cellular damage.
Imaging Can Detect CAC, Predict Mortality
Imaging with electron beam tomography or CT helps determine plaque build-up in coronary artery calcification among asymptomatic patients.
CCTA More Positive Patient Experience Than MPI
Patients who undergo coronary CT angiography receive lower radiation doses and are more pleased with the experience than with MPI.
CT Angiography Findings in Asymptomatic Patients
Coronary CT angiography detects links between arterial plaque, diabetes, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
Shortness of Breath
Case History: 60-year-old female with shortness of breath worsening with exertion and fatigue.
Lower Radiation and Contrast Dose with New Aortic CT Protocol
A CT protocol with lower radiation and contrast dose for aortic assessment provides acceptable diagnostic imaging.
