Cardiac CT makes strong predictions of major heart trouble

Cardiac CT gives emergency physicians the ability to predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients presenting with chest pain, according to a study published in the May issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Evolution of Coronary Computed Tomography Radiation Dose Reduction at a Tertiary Referral Center

A large study to be published in the August issue of the American Journal of Medicine reports a record radiation dose reduction of 74.8% to MGH Cardiac CT patients during the past 6 years.
