• Patients
  • Chest pain is often the first presenting symptom in patients with heart disease, and may be a warning signal prior to a heart attack or death. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Rapid access chest pain clinics (RACPCs) are able to expedite the assessment of such patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In this trial, the investigators aim to examine the accuracy and cost effectiveness of CTA in patients with suspected cardiac chest pain presenting to a chest pain clinic, when compared to the more established techniques like s-ECG, myocardial perfusion scanning and coronary angiography. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The study will enable us to establish the optimal and most cost effective strategy for investigation of patients presenting to chest pain clinics. (clinicaltrials.gov)
