DISCHARGE is a collaborative multinational research project. The consortium of the project is composed of 31 members in 18 European states. Core of the project is a pragmatic randomised controlled trial which includes 26 clinical sites from 16 European countries. The project will examine for which patients with suspected coronary artery disease based on stable chest pain, cardiac computed tomography (CT) or cardiac catheterisation is best suited and is based on the single-centre experience with the CAD-Man study at Charité.
