Post-mortem computed tomography with coronary angiography (PMCTA) could have a role in the investigation of sudden natural death. This study assesses the accuracy of targeted coronary PMCTA, using both air and iodinated contrast media, to provide sensitivity and specificity for critical stenosis (CS) on a segmental basis, based on a gold standard of 3–5 mm serial sections of the coronary arteries using macroscopic and histological techniques. Assessment of stenosis at 1 mm intervals on PMCTA… CONTINUE READING
