This chapter, found in the chest pain section of the book, provides a succinct synopsis of a key study examining the diagnostic performance of computed tomography (CT) coronary angiography for patients with chest pain. This summary outlines the study methodology and design, major results, limitations and criticisms, related studies and additional information, and clinical implications. Researchers found that CT angiography accurately detected present and severity of coronary artery disease in certain symptomatic patients, but does not yet replace conventional coronary angiography. In addition to outlining the most salient features of the study, a clinical vignette and imaging example are included in order to provide relevant clinical context.
