Abstract

Modern multidetector computed tomography systems are capable of a comprehensive assessment of the cardiovascular system, including noninvasive assessment of coronary anatomy. Multidetector computed tomography is expected to advance the role of noninvasive imaging for coronary artery disease, but clinical experience is still limited. Clinical guidelines are necessary to standardize scanner technology and appropriate clinical applications for coronary computed tomographic angiography. Further evaluation of this evolving technology will benefit from cooperation between different medical specialties, imaging scientists, and manufacturers of multidetector computed tomography systems, supporting multidisciplinary teams focused on the diagnosis and treatment of early and advanced stages of coronary artery disease. This cooperation will provide the necessary education, training, and guidelines for physicians and technologists assuring standard of care for their patients.
