Noninvasive assessment of coronary in-stent restenosis (ISR) is clinically useful but 4- and 16-slice multidetector computed tomography is limited due to stent strut artifacts. We evaluated the feasibility and accuracy of 64-slice multidetector computed tomography in the diagnosis of ISR to validate its accuracy in ISR quantification and identify factors that may affect stent patency evaluability. One hundred patients with previously implanted coronary stents (n = 179) underwent 64-slice… CONTINUE READING
