CTCA NICE Guidelines

The recently published National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline on ‘Chest pain of recent onset: assessment and diagnosis (CG95)‘, suggests Computer Tomography Coronary Angiography (CTCA) as the first line investigation for patients with stable chest pain if clinical assessment indicates typical or atypical angina, or a non-anginal chest pain with ECG changes suggesting underlying coronary artery disease.

CTCA is a relatively new technique and therefore the number of professionals currently trained in its acquisition and reporting is limited.

The British Society of Cardiovascular Imaging has recently published a report outlining the challenges these new guidelines may post to Trusts.

If you are now scanning in accordance with these guidelines and need some support with reporting, we have a fully trained team of cardiologists and radiologists who can help you, including our clinical leads Dr Anna Herrey and Dr Marina Hughes who are Level 3 Accredited Practitioners.

We care about patients, understanding the positive difference our reporting can make. This is remote radiology reporting, your way. As and when you need us.
