Abstract

We aimed to quantify ambiguous coronary stenosis using the minimal lumen area with 16-slice computed tomography compared with intravascular ultrasound. The sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy for significant lesion classification was 68%, 86%, and 78%, respectively. The correlation between intravascular ultrasound and CT minimal lumen area was r = 0.73 (p <0.001), and the 95% confidence interval for CT measurement was -72% to +56%.
