Subject: [Emfaculty] Need help with CT-STAT study

Hello all,

A short plea to remember the CT-STAT Study for your potential ACS patients (we are an enrolling site but thus far have put very few patients into the study):

The basics:

What: Compare CT coronary angiography with nuclear stress testing

Who: patients with
–          possible ACS
–          sinus rhythm without clear ischemic changes
–          normal creatinine
–          no history of CAD

How: Page Aileen at 6780- she will evaluate the patient, consent the patient, and facilitate the appropriate test. Aileen will also be rounding in the AM on CPU patients and if she enrolls a patient may ask you to change the ordered imaging study.

I’ve placed more information in the resident room and in the ED. Any questions? Don’t hesitate to ask.

Thanks in advance,
