Abstract

This project explores the diagnostic accuracy of multislice computed tomography coronary angiography (MS-CT) for detection of significant stenoses, and consequently selection of patients for revascularization. The aim is to detect and characterize coronary plaques with MS-CT as compared with intracoronary ultrasound, and to assess the total MS-CT coronary plaque burden.
