Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Coronary artery disease represents the single most important health problem in the industrialized world. A number of noninvasive methods of evaluating the coronary arteries exist, but none matches the accuracy of direct coronary angiography. This review discusses the current state of a promising noninvasive method of evaluating coronary artery disease using multislice computed tomography. Focus is placed on the current state-of-the-art of the technique, clinical applications, and future developments that should lead to a major impact on patient care.
