CArdiac cT in the Treatment of Acute CHest Pain 2 - Myocardial CT Perfusion (CATCH2)

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:12th Dec 2013
The aim of this study is to assess whether the clinical management of patients with recent acute-onset chest pain without acute coronary syndrome may be optimized by a combined coronary CT angiography (CTA) + CT myocardial perfusion (CTP) guided, rapid diagnostic strategy as compared to CTA alone. CT diagnostic evaluation and potential referral for invasive testing will be performed within 2 weeks after hospital discharge. The following main hypothesis will be tested: - Combined assessment of coronary anatomy and myocardial perfusion using 320 MDCT results in a safe and optimized, cost-effective invasive treatment strategy
