While multiple different imaging tests can be used to evaluate patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD), each of them is designed to evaluate either coronary anatomy or physiology. Recently, it has been recognized that cardiac CT can be used to evaluate stress and rest myocardial perfusion in addition to its capabilities to image the… CONTINUE READING
