Evaluation of the patient with acute chest pain.
The past decade has brought rapid advances in CT technology, which allows increasingly precise application to the study of coronary arteries and acute chest pain. The literature has expanded to lend quantifiable justification to the intuitive appeal of a rapid, reproducible, 3D study of the heart and vasculature. More complete analysis of efficacy and costs on broader populations will further refine our understanding of how best to implement what may become the new gold standard. Meanwhile, evolving technology promises to further challenge radiologists and clinicians to optimize approach and diagnosis to acute chest pain.
