Abstract

Reporting of cardiac CT scans is a process involving the appropriate indications, patient characteristics, description of protocols, recognition of artifacts and concise communication regarding fi ndings at the conclusion of the test. The necessary elements for successful reporting will be reviewed. The utilization of standards with regard to these reports will be emphasized. Available resources to improve successful reporting are noted. Just as as appropriate test selection and patient preparation are important aspects of a quality laboratory, the report is the fi nal element of this process. Accreditation of laboratories performing cardiac CT scans is an important marker of quality. As with all modalities, qualifi ed personnel, adherence to protocols and accurate reporting are all important aspects of accreditation by any of the qualifi ed organizations.
