Description

A 46-year-old female without cardiovascular risk factors presented to her primary physician with a chronic chest pain syndrome of two months duration. She denied any associated dyspnea on exertion, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, orthopnea, exertional intolerance or other symptom. The patient was referred to cardiology for further evaluation. The electrocardiogram was normal and cardiac biomarkers were negative. Given the chronicity of her symptoms and low risk cardiovascular risk profile, further evaluation with coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring and coronary CT angiography (CCTA) was performed.

As you know, the SCCT is the global professional medical membership organization dedicated to ensuring patient access to the appropriate use of cardiovascular CT. In keeping with SCCT's educational mission, this Case of the Month series showcases cardiovascular CTA in various clinical scenarios. This series is spearheaded by the Fellow and Resident Leaders of SCCT (FiRST) committee. Please provide feedback or forward any questions to info@scct.org.
