Early Rule out of ACS

Rapid CTCA


This study aims to investigate the effect of early computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) in patients with suspected or confirmed ACS upon interventions, event rates and health care costs in a pragmatic clinical trial and economic evaluation up to 1 year after the trial intervention. The primary objective will be to investigate the effect of the intervention on the proportion of patients with all-cause death or recurrent non-fatal type 1 and 4b Myocardial Infarction at one year.

An open, prospective, parallel-group, randomised controlled trial of CTCA in patients presenting to the Emergency Department or Medical Assessment Unit with suspected or confirmed acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in 30 NHS tertiary and district hospitals (with and without on-site coronary angiography facilities) with emergency departments, acute medical, radiology and cardiology services.
