Quantitative computed tomography analysis in the assessment of coronary artery disease
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the leading causes of death in developed countries. Recent literature confirmed multi detector computed tomography (MDCT) as a noninvasive imaging technique able to rule out and rule in CAD with a very high accuracy compared with Conventional Coronary Angiography (CCA). However the plaque burden and stenosis severity on MDCT is usually visually assessed with sequent inherent limitations. Recent technologies have permitted a real quantitative assessment of CAD.
