Defining Quality in Cardiovascular Imaging

  • The key criteria in evaluating quality is whether the procedure would lead to improved patient outcomes, including fewer adverse events and a better patient experience.
  • This scientific statement proposes to define quality in cardiovascular (CV) imaging using an analytical framework from the Institute of Medicine (IOM); the framework defines quality in testing based on whether it’s safe, effective, patients-centered, timely, equitable and efficient.
  • This scientific statement may serve as the foundation for integrating these quality indicators into establishing designations for quality laboratory practices and developing standards for value-based payment reform for imaging services.
