Abstract

Purpose of Review: To critically examine the Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System (CAD-RADS™) lexicon and its nuances, with representative case examples provided for each of the major CAD-RADS classification categories and modifiers. Recent Findings: CAD-RADS is a recently developed multi-disciplinary, multi-society standardized reporting system for coronary CTA based on scientific data and expert consensus from leaders in cardiac imaging. Summary: CAD-RADS was developed to improve quality and communication in cardiac imaging, and to provide management recommendations based on actionable information from the coronary CTA imaging report. Widespread adoption of CAD-RADS in clinical practice will help maximize the clinical impact of coronary CTA for the care of patients with acute and stable chest pain.
