|Updated NICE Guidelines|
Announcing the release of the most recent update to the NICE guidelines, kindly shared with us by one of SCCT’s leaders in the field, Dr. Ed Nicol.
A few of the major recommendations to highlight are:
126.96.36.199 Include the typicality of anginal pain features (see recommendation 188.8.131.52) in all requests for diagnostic investigations and in the person's notes. [2010, amended 2016]
184.108.40.206 Use clinical judgement and take into account people's preferences and comorbidities when considering diagnostic testing. 
220.127.116.11 Offer 64 slice (or above) CT coronary angiography if:
18.104.22.168 For people with confirmed CAD (for example, previous MI, revascularisation, previous angiography), offer non-invasive functional testing when there is uncertainty about whether chest pain is caused by myocardial ischaemia. See section 1.3.6 for further guidance on non-invasive functional testing. An exercise ECG may be used instead of functional imaging.
