New consensus document pulls from updated evidence and data, answering key questions on use.
There are new recommendations for the use of coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) from the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT).
In a new expert consensus document published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, industry leaders address new evidence, previous recommendation updates, and key questions about CCTA use in a variety of different cardiac scenarios.
“There have been many substantial advances in CCTA technology and a growing body of evidence for the use of cardiac CT in diagnoses of heart disease, prognostication, and modulating medical and interventional therapy,” said Harvey Hecht, Ph.D., FSCCT, chair and senior author of the expert consensus. “This expert consensus aims to address recent data and bridge the knowledge gap since the last update of the CCTA guidelines.”

The new consensus recommendations cover the evaluation of five areas:
Stable coronary artery disease: CCTA in Native Vessels
Stable Coronary Artery Disease: CCTA Post-Revascularization
Stable Coronary Artery Disease: CCTA with FFR or CTP
Stable Coronary Artery Disease: CCTA in Other Conditions
Reporting on CTA: Coronary and Non-Coronary Information
