CE-CCTCE-CCT - Contrast enhanced coronary computed tomography - (CECT) Contrast agents are used during contrast enhanced computed (or computerized) tomography examinations to highlight specific tissues and parts of the body.
CAD | IHDCAD - Coronary artery disease - Coronary artery disease (CAD), also known as ischemic heart disease (IHD), atherosclerotic heart disease, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, and coronary heart disease, is a group of diseases that includes: stable angina, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, and sudden coronary death.
CBCTCBCT - Cone-beam computed tomography - Cone beam computed tomography (or CBCT, also referred to as C-arm CT, cone beam volume CT, or flat panel CT) is a medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography where the X-rays are divergent, forming a cone.
CPAPCPAP - Continuous Positive Airway Pressure - CPAP) is a form of positive airway pressure ventilator, which applies mild air pressure on a continuous basis to keep the airways continuously open in a patient who is able to breathe spontaneously on his or her own.
CVCCVC - Central venous catheters - In medicine, a central venous catheter ("central line", "CVC", "central venous line" or "central venous access catheter") is a catheter placed into a large vein in the neck (internal jugular vein), chest (subclavian vein or axillary vein) or groin (femoral vein).
CADCAD - Computer-aided detection | computer-aided diagnosis - CAD is a technology designed to decrease observational oversights—and thus the false negative rates—of physicians interpreting medical images.
CVP | MVPCVP - Central venous pressure - CVP, also known as mean venous pressure (MVP) is the pressure of blood in the thoracic vena cava, near the right atrium of the heart. CVP reflects the amount of blood returning to the heart and the ability of the heart to pump the blood into the arterial system.
COSICOSI - Client Oriented Scale of Improvement - In the Client Oriented Scale of Improvement (COSI) method, the client effectively writes the self-report questionnaire by nominating up to five listening situations in which help with hearing is required.
CTCAECTCAE - Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events - CTCAE, formerly called the Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC or NCI-CTC), are a set of criteria for the standardized classification of adverse effects of drugs used in cancer therapy. The CTCAE system is a product of the US National Cancer Institute (NCI).
CRT-DCRT-D - Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy including Defibrillator - An implanted cardiac resynchronization device is a medical device used in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). It resynchronizes the contractions of the heart’s ventricles by sending tiny electrical impulses to the heart muscle, which can help the heart pump blood throughout the body more efficiently.
CTCT - Computed tomography - Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging procedure that uses special x-ray equipment to create a series of detailed pictures, or scans, of areas inside the body. It is also called computerized tomography and computerized axial tomography (CAT) scanning.
CTCCTC - Computed tomographic colonography - CT colonography, also known as virtual colonoscopy, uses low dose radiation CT scanning to obtain an interior view of the colon (the large intestine) that is otherwise only seen with a more invasive procedure where an endoscope is inserted into the rectum and passed through the entire colon.
