Objectives: The goal of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of stress computed tomography myocardial perfusion (CTP) for the detection of functionally significant coronary artery disease (CAD) by using invasive coronary angiography (ICA) plus invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR) as the reference standard in consecutive intermediate- to high-risk symptomatic patients. Background: Stress CTP recently emerged as a potential strategy to combine the anatomic and functional evaluation of CAD in a single scan. Methods: A total of 100 consecutive symptomatic patients scheduled for ICA were prospectively enrolled. All patients underwent rest coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) followed by stress static CTP with a whole-heart coverage CT scanner (Revolution CT, GE Healthcare, Milwaukee, Wisconsin). Diagnostic accuracy and overall effective dose were assessed and compared versus those of ICA and invasive FFR. Results: The prevalence of obstructive CAD and functionally significant CAD were 69% and 44%, respectively. Coronary CTA alone demonstrated a per-vessel and per-patient sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value, positive predictive value, and accuracy of 98%, 76%, 99%, 63%, and 83% and of 98%, 54%, 96%, 68%, and 76%, respectively. Combining coronary CTA with stress CTP, per-vessel and per-patient sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value, positive predictive value, and accuracy were 91%, 94%, 96%, 86%, and 93% and 98%, 83%, 98%, 86%, and 91%, with a significant improvement in specificity, positive predictive value, and accuracy in both models. The mean effective dose for coronary CTA and stress CTP were 2.8 ± 1.4 mSv and 2.5 ± 1.1 mSv. Conclusions: The inclusion of stress CTP for the evaluation of patients with an intermediate to high risk for CAD is feasible and improved the diagnostic performance of coronary CTA for detecting functionally significant CAD.
