CT stress perfusion imaging for detection of haemodynamically relevant coronary stenosis as defined by FFR HEART Greif, M., von Ziegler, F., Bamberg, F., Tittus, J., Schwarz, F., D'Anastasi, M., Marcus, R. P., Schenzle, J., Becker, C., Nikolaou, K., Becker, A. 2013; 99 (14): 1004-1011


To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy (DA) of CT-myocardial perfusion imaging (CT-MPI) and a combined approach with CT angiography (CTA) for the detection of haemodynamically relevant coronary stenoses in patients with both suspected and known coronary artery disease.Prospective, non-randomised, diagnostic study.Academic hospital-based study.65 patients (42 men age 70.4±9) with typical or atypical chest pain.CTA and CT-MPI with adenosine stress using a fast dual-source CT system. At subsequent invasive angiography, FFR measurement was performed in coronary arteries to define haemodynamic relevance of stenosis.We tried to correlate haemodynamically relevant stenosis (FFR?
