A 42-year-old female patient, with a known history of paroxysmal atrial tachyarrythmia for the past 27 years and exertional dyspnea for the past two, had undergone various exercise stress tests and echocardiographs. All these results were within the normal range. She developed exertional chest pain within the past month and a coronary CT angiography (cCTA) was requested to rule out coronary anomalies.
The outcomes by Siemens Healthineers customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting. Since there is no “typical” hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
