Cost-effectiveness analysis of 64-slice computed tomography vs. cardiac catheterization to rule out coronary artery disease before non-coronary cardiovascular surgery.


AIMS To explore the cost-effectiveness of two alternative strategies to rule out significant coronary artery disease (CAD) in the pre-operative evaluation of non-coronary cardiovascular surgery: initial pre-operative coronary 64-slice computed tomography angiography (CCTA) vs. invasive coronary angiography (ICA). METHODS AND RESULTS These diagnostic… (More)
