Abstract

Multidetector computed tomography is rapidly emerging as a noninvasive method to evaluate the coronary anatomy. Technical advances available in modern scanners now lead to adequate image quality in most patients. Image acquisition and interpretation can be performed very rapidly, making this technology suitable for the evaluation of ambulatory patients. This review summarizes the capabilities and limitations of multidetector computed tomography coronary angiography performed with current generation scanners.
