BACKGROUND The new 64-row multidetector computed tomography (CT)-assisted angiography can now detect coronary artery disease with shorter breath-hold time and at faster heart rates for symptomatic patients. We aim to determine if the 64-row scanner can also overcome limitations due to mild to moderate calcification. METHODS Scheduled for conventional coronary angiography, 134 symptomatic patients underwent multidetector CT-assisted angiography within 3 months. Patients were divided into those… CONTINUE READING
