18Conclusion (I) Screening asymptomatic high risk population (CAC, CTA) Exclusion of stenosis in patients with low likelihood of extensive diseaseDiagnosis in pts with atypical anginaPost-procedural evaluation (CABG, stent)Plaque characterizationFollow-up after drug treatment
19Conclusion (II)The fast volume coverage of ECG gated 16 slice CT enables acquisition of the entire heart volume with nearly isotropic resolution within a single breath hold.
