Minimisation of radiation exposure with cardiac imaging reduces the potential of secondary side effects. Radiation exposure from myocardial perfusion scintigraphy and computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) was compared. Overall doses were low with both modalities. Doses were lower in the CTCA group, but by only a small difference of 1.1 mSv. Radiation exposure should not be the primary consideration when choosing between these two modalities.
