AIMS The severity of coronary artery narrowing is a poor predictor of functional significance, in particular in intermediate coronary lesions (30-70% diameter narrowing). The aim of this work was to compare the performance of a quantitative hyperaemic myocardial blood flow (MBF) index derived from adenosine dynamic computed tomography perfusion (CTP) imaging with that of visual CT coronary angiography (CTCA) and semi-automatic quantitative CT (QCT) in the detection of functionally significant… CONTINUE READING
