Computed tomography (CT) scanners for cardiac imaging - Somatom Definition Flash, Aquilion One, Brilliance iCT and Discovery CT750

Computed tomography (CT) scanners for cardiac imaging - Somatom Definition Flash, Aquilion One, Brilliance iCT and Discovery CT750

Status: History
Notes:

In addition to people with known or suspected coronary artery disease, children and adults with congenital heart disease were also identified during scoping for this topic as being potentially the most likely to benefit from new generation cardiac CT scanners. However, during the assessment phase, no evidence was found on the use of new generation cardiac CT scanners in this population. Consequently, the Diagnostic Advisory Committee did not make recommendations for this population, and reference to it has been removed from the Diagnostic Consultation and Guidance Documents. The title of both these documents has also been updated to reflect the patient population to which they apply.
