OBJECTIVES We evaluated the technical and clinical utility of visual 5-point coronary stenosis grading on coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA). BACKGROUND The binary approach used to assess coronary stenoses on CCTA does not adequately describe borderline obstructive lesions and limits full expression of clinically useful information. METHODS From 84 patients who underwent CCTA and invasive angiography, we identified 278 native coronary segments with > or =25% stenosis on CCTA… CONTINUE READING
