[Diagnostic accuracy of 64 row multidetector computed tomography for coronary artery disease assessment].

Abstract

Due to technical advances, multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) allows evaluation of the coronary arteries and could in specific clinical indications provide a minimally invasive alternative to coronary angiography (CA). Recent technical advances combined with the availability of 64 row MDCT have significantly improved the evaluation of the native coronary arteries. However limitations remain for the evaluation of bypass grafts and stents. In this paper, we present a review the current literature on the diagnostic accuracy of 64 row MDCT in the assessment of coronary artery disease, and discuss the clinical implications and proposed indications of coronary CTA.
