Despite ASNC’s policy of collaboration and inclusivity and its long track record of collaborative guideline development, we are unable to endorse the current AHA/ACC Guideline for the Evaluation and Diagnosis of Chest Pain. The lack of balance in the document’s presentation of the science on FFR-CT and its inappropriately prominent endorsement detract from ASNC’s core principle of patient first imaging. We believe that the document fails to provide unbiased guidance to healthcare professionals on the optimal evaluation of patients with chest pain.
