AbstractText: Data on the clinical utility of coronary computed tomography angiography-derived fractional flow reserve (FFRCT) are sparse. In patients with intermediate (40-70%) coronary stenosis determined by coronary computed tomography angiography, we investigated the association of replacing standard myocardial perfusion ... of symptomatic patients with suspected coronary artery disease referred to coronary computed tomography angiography between 2013 and 2015.

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study is to determine the diagnostic performance of computed tomography perfusion (CTP) with and without computed tomography angiography (CTA) in assessment of hemodynamically significant coronary artery lesions in comparison to invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR). MATERIALS AND METHODS: PubMed and Cochrane Center Register of Controlled Trials from January 2010 searched through December 2014. Nine original studies were selected evaluating the diagnostic performance of CTP with and without CTA to invasive coronary angiography in evaluation of hemodynamic significance of coronary lesions (n = 951). RESULTS: The sensitivity, specificity, LR+ and LR- and DOR of CTA+CTP were 0.85 [95% confidence interval (CI: 0.79-0.89)] 0.94 (CI: 0.91-0.97), 15.8 (CI: 7.99-31.39), 0.146 (CI: 0.08-0.26), and 147.2 (CI: 69.77-310.66). Summary Receiver Operating Characteristics (SROC) results showed area under the curve (AUC) of 0.97 indicating that CTA+CTP may detect hemodynamically significant coronary artery lesions with high accuracy. The sensitivity, specificity, LR+ and LR- and DOR of CTP were 0.83 (CI: 0.78-0.87), 0.84 (CI: 0.80-0.87) 5.26 (CI: 2.93-9.43), 0.209 (CI: 0.12-0.36), and 31.97 (CI: 11.59-88.20). CONCLUSIONS: This result suggests that CTP with CTA significantly improves diagnostic performance of coronary artery lesions compared to CTA alone and closely comparable with invasive FFR.

Cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA) is a noninvasive imaging technique that has been rapidly adopted into clinical practice. Over the past decade, technological advances have improved CCTA accuracy, and there is an increasing amount of data supporting its prognostic value in the assessment of coronary artery disease. Recently, "appropriate use criteria" has been used as a tool to minimize inappropriate ...

AbstractText: CT-FFR is an area of growing interest in the field of cardiac imaging. However, the specific anatomic location distal to a lesion of interest where CT-FFR should be computed to yield the most valid results has not been examined. This study investigated the most appropriate anatomic location distal to a coronary artery stenosis for obtaining CT-FFR ...

Radiation exposure remains a concern in the use of coronary CT angiography (CCTA. Full reconstruction (Full) and reconstruction using advanced patient motion correction (APMC) could obtain a lower radiation dose using low tube current scanning in a 320-row Area Detector CT (320-ADCT. The radiation dose for an imaging protocol using Full and APMC in daily practice was estimated.
