REBEL Core Cast 111.0 – Cardiac Testing

Take Home Points:

  • A CCTA is an anatomic test to determine if a patient has normal coronary arteries, non-obstructive disease, or obstructive disease. The warranty period for a CCTA is anywhere from 3-10 years depending on the characteristics of the plaque. 
  • A nuclear stress test is a functional study that allows for ischemia-driven management. The warranty period of a nuclear stress test is 2 years. 
  • A test is only as good as the data and its interpretation! Trust yourself!
