Abstract

A high-speed, multi-slice coronary computed tomography (CT) imaging has emerged as a promising or clinically available multifunctional technique for the assessment of myocardial ischemia, viability, ischemia-induced cardiac dysfunction, and coronary atherosclerotic alterations in patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease. Despite several technical issues remain to be resolved, cardiac CT imaging will have a reality as a multifunctional modality for guiding physicians in better decision-making for favorable clinical outcomes in patients with suspected coronary artery disease, provided that this imaging technology can contribute to characterization and localization of high-risk coronary atherosclerosis in combination with the quantitative evaluation of functional myocardial ischemia.
