Abstract

CT coronary angiography (CTCA) allows accurate noninvasive imaging of the coronary arteries. As illustrated by this case report, the three-dimensional information provided by this technique might be of value to resolve complex coronary pathology encountered in the cathlab. However, the limitations inherent to an anatomical test also apply for CTCA, and bring in the need for functional information to ensure adequate patient management. (Neth Heart J 2009;17:292-4.)
