Abstract

In 26 patients, 16-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) with 0.75-mm collimation and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) of 1 coronary artery were performed. At 100 sites within the coronary arteries, the measurement of cross-sectional luminal area and, if detectable, the cross-sectional area of atherosclerotic plaque was performed independently with IVUS and MDCT. The mean luminal area (r = 0.92), measured at 100 sites, and plaque area (r = 0.55), measured at 65 sites, were significantly correlated (p <0.001) between MDCT and IVUS. The mean luminal area and mean plaque area were slightly but significantly overestimated with MDCT. MDCT permits the noninvasive measurement of coronary cross-sectional luminal and plaque areas with moderate accuracy.
