Sensitivity is one of the important indicatives for evaluating the reliability of a medical procedure. Herein, we have evaluated the sensitivity of CT angiography (CTA) in comparison with conventional invasive angiography (CIA) in the diagnosis of significant stenosis. For this purpose we used a 16-multidetector-row scanning machine. In this regard, 8 patients suspected to stenosis were investigated. They patients were undertaken both procedures. The obtained results show, the sensitivity of 87.5 for patient-base analysis. The findings of this study reveal that CT angiography with 16-slice scanner might be considered as an acceptable technique for rapid triage of patients. The moderate value of sensitivity depicts moderate score for CTA protocol for replacement. It should be noted that the low number of patients results in obtaining results which cannot be used for final decision. and more patients is required to examine the procedure.
