Led by Dr. Andrew Einstein, a cardiologist at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, researchers calculated the lifetime attributable cancer risk associated with radiation exposure from a single scan (called computer tomography coronary angiography, or CTCA), based on the patient's sex and age.
Einstein expects that the new study's findings will have several implications in the everyday practice of medicine. "I think this can reassure a lot of patients that CTCA is a good test-and a safe test particularly for older patients," says Einstein. "On the other hand, for younger women, I think it may affect physicians' thinking in terms of the risk-benefit ratio of the test." Because of the potential hazards involved with radiation exposure, Einstein warns patients against attempts to "get pretty pictures of their heart" without a doctor's recommendation. Otherwise, he says, the CTCA can be an excellent noninvasive alternative to the current gold standard test for heart disease, the coronary angiography, which involves threading a catheter from the groin to the heart's blood vessels, and can cause complications such as blood clots, infection and even death. CTCA is also a good substitute for the time-consuming diagnostic tests in use in emergency departments; with CTCA physicians can find out sooner when there is a problem with the patient's heart. Down the line, Einstein believes his team's conclusions will boost cardiac diagnostic technology and prompt major manufacturers to improve it. "This is an impetus toward accelerating the pace of research in cardiac CT scans so as to reduce the dose to patients," says Einstein.
