Abstract

Background: Previous studies that compared multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) non-invasive coronary angiography with conventional coronary angiography, did not assessed the ability of MDCT to detect stenotic lesions correctly in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) patients. The aim of the present study was to assess prospectively the correlation and bias between 16-slice MDCT coronary angiography and quantitative coronary angiography analysis (QCA) in these patients. Methods: Patients underwent electrocardiogram-gated, 16-slice MDCT coronary angiography and routine invasive percutaneous coronary angiography with quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) analysis blinded to MDCT results. The correlation and the bias between the results of MDCT and QCA were assessed in segments observed by both modalities in vessels≥2 mm in diameter. Results: 59 patients (81% male, age 56±11 years), admitted due to ACS, underwent MDCT and invasive coronary angiography. 544 segments were analyzed. The correlations between MDCT and QCA observed for the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD), the left circumflex coronary artery (Cx), the right coronary artery (RCA) and for all analyzed segments were 0.74 ( P
