Abstract

Herein, authors have evaluated the specificity of CT angiography (CTA) in comparison with conventional invasive angiography (CIA) in the diagnosis of coronary stenosis. For this purpose, 8 patients suspected to stenosis was used. They were undertaken CIA procedure after CTA using 16-multidetector-row machine. Result reveals that for patient-base analysis, the specificity of CTA was 25. The values of specificity reveal a unacceptable performance of CTA. However, due to low number of patients, the obtained results cannot be used for final decision.
