The role of standard non-ECG gated chest CT in cardiac assessment: design and rationale of the Cardiac Pathologies in standard chest CT (CaPaCT) study
The purpose of this observer blinded, single-centre study is to assess the visibility, management, and possible clinical impact of incidental cardiac pathologies that are now becoming visible on standard chest CTs. The data collected by two experienced, blinded cardiac radiologists will be subsequently assessed using the CAD Reporting and Data System classification.
