Projected Requirement for CTCA - Absolute Increase in Provision Needed

Map 4. Absolute increase in number of CTCA required by region* in the UK 

Conversely, in more heavily populated regions, such as Greater Manchester, there is also a relatively low provision to the large population and nearly 15,000 extra scans will be required per year to meet the projected NICE guidelines. This represents a 7000% increase compared with current activity. Even in North-West London where CTCA activity is to be highest in the UK, the proportionate increase in activity is the lowest but still requires a 100% increase in throughput. This is not an insigni cant change in delivery for any cardiac CT service.
