PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of cardiac computed tomographic (CT) angiography without the use of β-blockers compared with that of invasive angiography for the detection of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) in heart transplant recipients. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was approved by the research ethics committee and informed consent was obtained. Heart transplant recipients (n = 138) scheduled for routine invasive angiography were prospectively enrolled to undergo CT to… CONTINUE READING
