Noninvasive detection of coronary lesions by multislice computed tomography: results of the New Age pilot trial.


The reliable noninvasive assessment of coronary artery disease would constitute an important step forward in clinical cardiology. The aim of the New Age pilot trial was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of multislice computed tomography (MSCT) in determining coronary lesions. As a gold standard for in vivo plaque detection, intracoronary ultrasound (ICUS… (More)
