BACKGROUND In this study, we investigated the diagnostic value and limitations of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT)-based noninvasive detection of significant obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) in a consecutive high-risk patient population with inclusion of all coronary segments. METHODS AND RESULTS In a prospective, blinded, standard cross-sectional technology assessment, a cohort of 33 consecutive patients with a positive stress test result underwent 16-slice MDCT and… CONTINUE READING
