Comprehensive Cardiac Diagnosis for Patients with Coronary Stents

Coronary in-stent restenosis in CTA (A) with myocardial perfusion reduction in CT (B). From JACC.

The combination of myocardial perfusion and coronary CT imaging improves diagnosis for patients with coronary stents while it does not lead to higher radiation dose to patients than invasive procedures as shown in a study published in JACC by Charité researchers.
