The European Cardiac CT Registry has the unique potential to provide important data that will help to clarify the clinical role of cardiac computed tomography (CT), to create guidelines and recommendations for its use, and to identify the most important areas that require specific further research.

Consecutive Patients Undergoing Computed Tomography of the Heart for Clinical Indications

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: European Cardio CT Registry

Further study details as provided by Stiftung Institut fuer Herzinfarktforschung:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • collect data [ Time Frame: June 2009- ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The general aim of the Registry is to collect data from a large number of patients regarding the indications, general use, safety, and therapeutic implications of cardiac CT in European clinical practice.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • effect of coronary CT angiography [ Time Frame: June 2009- ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A first specific aim of the Registry is the analysis of the effect of coronary CT angiography on downstream resource utilization, revascularization procedures, and prognosis in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease

  • analysis of radiation exposure during coronary CT angiography [ Time Frame: June 2009- ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The second specific aim is the analysis of radiation exposure during coronary CT angiography and the identification of parameters that influence radiation exposure, with the potential to provide specific guidance for interventions to lower radiation dose in the future

Estimated Enrollment: 20000
Study Start Date: June 2009

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
All consecutive patients that are studies by computed tomography of the heart for clinical indications

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Inclusion of all consecutive patients with accomplished or attempted CT imaging of the heart (whether imaging of the coronary arteries or other structures of the heart)
  • Informed consent to be entered in the registry.
  • Inclusion of all consecutive patients with accomplished or attempted coronary CT angiography.
  • Inclusion of all patients who undergo coronary CT angiography for clinical indications, with separate analysis of patients with suspected coronary artery disease and previously known coronary artery disease.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Besides the absence of informed consent, and cardiac CT studies performed as part of a research protocol, no exclusion criteria exist.
