Abstract
Patient prognosis has been shown to directly correlate with the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) diagnosed by coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA), myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), as well as cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR). As such multi-modality imaging techniques are becoming more readily available it is prudent to understand the indications, limitations and benefits of each technique and when utilize it. We have reviewed the utilization of these modalities in patients who are low risk with high risk occupations, intermediate risk, as well as high risk when clinically indicated to provide easy to use guidance for clinicians supporting the unique population we serve. This approach resulted in significant cost reduction to the department of defense with associated improve cardiovascular outcomes when downstream utilization was assessed. In addition, we have translated that success and implemented programs in the emergency department where patients disposition to home was decreased to a mean of 3 hours with zero incidence of cardiovascular events in 30 days, further improving the downstream utilization of cardiovascular testing
