Abstract

Practice guidelines issued by professional societies significantly impact cardiology practice throughout the world. They increasingly incorporate cardiac CT imaging. This review systematically analyzes clinical practice guidelines issued by the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF)/American Heart Association (AHA) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) as well as the multi-societal appropriateness criteria in their latest versions as of September 1st, 2015, in order to identify the extent to which they include recommendations to use cardiac CT in specific clinical situations.
