Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography shares new CCTA guidance

The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) has published a new guideline focused on coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA).

The guidance, published in full in the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, includes updates to pervious CCTA recommendations and was designed to answer common questions about when specialists should—and when they should not—consider CCTA.  

“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,” senior author Harvey Hecht, PhD, said in a prepared statement. “This expert consensus aims to address recent data and bridge the knowledge gap since the last update of the CCTA guidelines.”
