In vitro validation of coronary CT angiography for the evaluation of complex lesions
The aim of this study was to assess in vitro the diagnostic accuracy of computed tomography angiography (CTA) for the evaluation of complex coronary lesions.
In vitro, CTA is accurate for the evaluation of bifurcation lesions. CTA was able to distinguish contrast-filled lumen even in severe obstructive lesions. These findings require further validation in the clinical setting.
