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.,
