OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of average heart rate and heart rate variability on the diagnostic accuracy of 64-MDCT in the assessment of coronary artery stenosis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS CT and invasive coronary angiography were performed on 114 patients (mean age, 62 years) referred for known coronary artery disease (n = 26), atypical chest pain (n = 58), and presurgical exclusion of coronary artery disease before abdominal aortic (n = 14) or cardiac valve (n… CONTINUE READING
