Classification of CCT Procedures

Cardiac:
 • Static tomographic and 3D non-contrast and contrast-enhanced anatomy of the heart, heart chambers, and pericardium (electron beam tomography [EBT] and multi-detector computed tomography [MDCT])
 • Dynamic contrast-enhanced assessment of left and right ventricular function (EBT and MDCT)
 • Quantitative coronary artery calcium scoring and interpretation (EBT and MDCT)
 • Performance and interpretation of tomographic and 3D contrast-enhanced CCT coronary angiography, including native and anomalous coronary vessels and coronary bypass grafts, aortic root, proximal pulmonary arteries, superior and inferior vena cavae, pulmonary veins (EBT and MDCT), and common congenital abnormalities involving the heart and central vasculature
Thoracic Aorta:
 • Static tomographic and 3D non-contrast and contrast-enhanced anatomy of central vasculature (thoracic aorta) (EBT and MDCT)
 • Performance and interpretation of tomographic and 3D contrast-enhanced CCT central vascular angiography including aortic arch and thoracic aorta (EBT and MDCT)
