SCCT releases new consensus document on cardiovascular CT

By staff writers

April 30, 2021 -- The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) has released a new expert consensus document on the role of cardiovascular CT in occupational health assessment for coronary heart disease.

The document, currently in press in the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, addresses the need for guidance in the use of cardiac CT in risk assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD) in occupational health evaluation.

It provides evidence regarding the prevalence of CAD and the incidence of major adverse cardiac events, as well as recommendations for enhanced cardiovascular screening and investigation for CAD evaluation among safety-sensitive occupations, such as pilots, astronauts, commercial drivers, military personnel, police officers, and firefighters.

The full expert consensus document can be read at the journal's website.
