Abstract

Achieving Quality in Cardiovascular Imaging. Pamela Douglas, Ami E. Iskandrian, Harlan M. Krumholz; Linda Gillam, Robert Hendel, James Jollis, Eric Peterson; Pamela Douglas, Jersey Chen, Linda Gillam, Robert Hendel, James Jollis, Ami Iskandrian, Harlan M. Krumholz, Frederick Masoudi, Emile Mohler III, Robert L. McNamara, Manesh R. Patel, Eric Peterson, John Spertus. Cardiovascular imaging has enjoyed both rapid technological advances and sustained growth, yet less attention has been focused on quality than in other areas of cardiovascular medicine. To address this deficit, representatives from cardiovascular imaging societies, private payers, government agencies, the medical imaging industry, and experts in quality measurement met, and this report provides an overview of the discussions. A consensus definition of quality in imaging and a convergence of opinion on quality measures across imaging modalities was achieved and are intended to be the start of a process culminating in the development, dissemination, and adoption of quality measures for all cardiovascular imaging modalities.
