BACKGROUND Numerous studies have compared coronary CT angiography (CTA) with quantitative coronary angiography. However, the ability of coronary CTA to identify atherosclerosis and to accurately measure plaque and coronary area and volume measurements as compared with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) has not been fully defined. OBJECTIVE We sought to assess the ability of coronary CTA to quantify coronary and plaque measurements commonly performed with IVUS. METHODS We searched multiple… CONTINUE READING
