OBJECTIVES We sought to determine the prognostic and incremental value of coronary artery disease (CAD) severity, coronary atherosclerosis, and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) measured with cardiac computed tomography angiography (CTA). BACKGROUND CTA is an emerging tool used for the detection of obstructive CAD. However, there are limited data… CONTINUE READING
