  • 2 = CAD-RADS 2
  • 3 = CAD-RADS 3
  • 4A = CAD-RADS 4A
  • 4B = CAD-RADS 4B
  • 5 = CAD-RADS 5
  • N = CAD-RADS N

Instructions:The intent of CAD-RADS Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System is to create a standardized method to communicate findings of coronary CT angiography (coronary CTA) in order to facilitate decision-making regarding further patient management. The suggested CAD-RADS classification is applied on a per-patient basis and represents the highest-grade coronary artery lesion documented by coronary CTA.
