Abstract

The world of cardiac imaging is proposing to physicians an ever-increasing spectrum of options and tools with the disadvantages of patients presently submitted to multiple, sequential, time-consuming, and costly diagnostic procedures and tests, sometimes with contradicting results. In the last two decades, the CCTA has evolved into a valuable diagnostic test in today’s patient care, changing the official existing guidelines and clinical practice with a pivotal role to exclude significant CAD, in the referral of patients to the Cath-Lab, in the follow-up after coronary revascularization, and finally in the cardiovascular risk stratification.
