PURPOSE Recently, ultra-high-resolution computed tomography (U-HRCT) with a 0.25 mm × 128-row detector was introduced. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of coronary CT angiography (CCTA) using U-HRCT. METHODS This retrospective study included 38 consecutive patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) who underwent CCTA with U-HRCT followed by invasive coronary angiography (ICA). Per-segment diameter stenosis was calculated. Diagnostic performance… CONTINUE READING
