This has led to increased efficiency, decreased length of stay and reduced patient anxiety.
Innovation in the ED
While utilization of coronary CT is not unusual, our implementation of the procedure in the emergency department is. Not only do we know how to maximize the potential of imaging equipment, but we also work closely with other clinicians and hospital administrators to train technologists and create clinical pathways to perform these procedures in a timely manner. Radiologists who are fellowship trained in cardiac imaging are available to interpret these studies every day.
