Projected Requirement for CTCA - Relative Increase in Provision Needed

<-Previous    Next->

Map 5. Percentage increase in number of CTCA required by region* in the UK 

It is clear that the UK cardiovascular CT community faces a significant challenge to deliver the output required from this revision to NICE guidance. Even the best prepared regions and departments face a minimum of a doubling of CTCA scans they are asked to provide.

Many centres will face much greater increases in demand, and some will effectively be starting from scratch. It must also be understood that the revised guidelines come with no additional funding, and for many centres the recommended numbers will remain aspirational for some time.
