Risk calculators and risk factors for Cardiac tamponade screening

Overview

Cardiac tamponade is more of a clinical diagnosis. If the patient clinical manifestations raise suspicion toward tamponade, CT scan and echocardiogram are diagnostic gold standards for the disease. There are no recommendations available for screening.

Screening

  • Tamponade is more of a clinical diagnosis.[1][2]
  • CT scan and ecchocardigraphy can help to diagnose tamponade .[3]
