ACC, AHA issue aortic disease imaging guidelines

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

November 2, 2022 -- The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) have released imaging guidelines for the diagnosis and management of aortic disease.

The publication stresses the importance of consistency in the way CT or MRI imaging is obtained and reported, in the measurement of aortic size and features, and in how often images are used for monitoring before and after repair surgery or other intervention. It was published November 2 in Journal of the American College of Cardiology and Circulation.

Ideally, all surveillance imaging for a patient should be done using the same modality and in the same lab, the ACC said in a news release.
