Ricardo Cury, MD, chairman of radiology and director of cardiac imaging, Baptist Health South Florida and Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, discusses the new CAD-RADS 2.0 cardiac imaging reporting criteria.
As the population of patients with adult congenital heart disease grows, they are presenting to adult cardiology clinics and being imaged with CT. Many also do not have access or cannot be imaged by MRI, said Renee Bullock-Palmer, MD.
The statement was written to fill gaps in recommendations from prior consensus statements and guidelines in regards to the use of CCT in cardio-oncology, including use of calcium scoring and ruling out coronary disease when cardiac function is impaired.
A new consensus statement from the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography emphasized the increasing importance of CCTA among interventional cardiologists. It is no longer seen as “a mere diagnostic tool," the group observed.
Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) President Brian Ghoshhajra, MD, explains the vascular imaging sessions at SCCT 2022 that went beyond the usual coronaries and structural heart evaluations.
