Validity of Coronary Artery Disease Consortium Models for Predicting Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease & Cardiovascular Events in Patients with Acute Chest Pain Considered for Coronary Computed Tomographic Angiography.
Am J Cardiol
Although the majority of acute chest pain patients are diagnosed with noncardiac chest pain after noninvasive testing, identifying these low-risk patients before testing is challenging. The objective of this study was to validate the coronary artery disease (CAD) consortium models for predicting obstructive CAD and 30-day major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in acute chest pain patients considered for coronary computed tomography angiogram, as well as to determine the pretest probability threshold that identifies low-risk patients with
