AIMS In symptomatic patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD), computed tomographic angiography (CTA) improves patient selection for invasive coronary angiography (ICA) compared with functional testing. The impact of measuring fractional flow reserve by CTA (FFRCT) is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS At 11 sites, 584 patients with new onset chest(More)
AIMS Motion artefacts due to high or irregular heart rate (HR) are common limitations of coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography (CCTA). The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of a new motion-correction (MC) algorithm used in conjunction with low-dose prospective ECG-triggering CCTA on motion artefacts, image quality, and coronary(More)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality and it is responsible for an increasing resource burden. The identification of patients at high risk for adverse events is crucial to select those who will receive the greatest benefit from revascularization. To this aim, several non-invasive functional imaging modalities(More)
