Abstract

  • © 2017, American Society of Nuclear Cardiology. In this Guidelines in Review, we review side-by-side the recommendations provided by the 2014 AHA/ACC Guideline for the management of patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes and the 2015 ESC Guidelines for the management of acute coronary syndromes in patients presenting without persistent ST-segment elevation. We review the recommendations for imaging in the evaluation of patients with possible ACS followed by the diagnostic evaluation of patients with proven NSTE-ACS, based on their risk for adverse clinical events.
