Abstract

Non-invasive cardiac imaging modalities including single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion image (SPECT-MPI) and coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) have been widely used for diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology and Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography have recently published the guidelines for the instrumentation, acquisition, processing, interpretation, as well as reporting of SPECT and coronary CTA. These guidelines have highlighted and well documented how the imaging reporting influences medical practice for physician and treatment care for patients, suggesting that cardiac imaging reports for interpretation for patient management. This review article here summarizes improving quality of cardiac imaging reports by SPECT-MPI and coronary CTA.
