Abstract

Sixteen-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) were performed in 29 patients. Quantification of the degree of luminal narrowing and lesion length measurements were performed independently on MDCT and QCA at 42 sites with sufficient computed tomographic image quality. The correlation between MDCT and QCA for quantifying the degree of stenosis was excellent (r2 = 0.93), although a systematic overestimation was observed by MDCT (bias 4% ± 8%). The correlation between MDCT and QCA was moderate with respect to lesion length (r2 = 0.54). In the absence of severe calcifications or motion artifacts, MDCT permits noninvasive quantification of coronary stenosis.
