LAKE CHARLES, La. (January 10, 2019)
PRECISE stands for Prospective Randomized Trial of the Optimal Evaluation of Cardiac Symptoms and Revascularization. This trial compares the typical diagnostic approach of stress testing/invasive cardiac catheterization to a new strategy using risk-based testing and CTA scans. The goal of PRECISE will reveal whether this new strategy will improve accuracy, outcomes, efficiency, and cost of caring for patients with coronary artery disease.
Only 2,000 patients will be enrolled in 100 centers worldwide. Being selected to participate in this new study once again places Cardiovascular Specialists of Southwest Louisiana on the frontline of cardiovascular research right here at home.
