The study is designed to evaluate the predictive diagnostic accuracy of SonoMedica's CardioSond digital electronic stethoscope in the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients without known disease who are referred to cardiac computed tomography angiography (CT scans).
The CardioSond is a completely noninvasive medical device which detects heart sounds and murmurs using ultrasensitive acoustic technology. The CardioSond produces a flow micro bruit score which is used to determine the likelihood of coronary artery disease.
The CardioSond exam will be given to patients who agree to participate in the study upon signing of an informed consent form and prior to the administration of beta blocker agents and / or vasodilators as part of the normal cardiac CT angiography protocol.
CardioSond data will be sent to an independent acoustic core lab which will determine data quality and produce a flow micro bruit score. CT angiography data will be analyzed by staff at North Shore University Hospital.
A data review panel lead my the principal investigator will examine the results of both the CardioSond and CT angiography data to determine the accuracy of the CardioSond in detecting CAD in the study population at large and in specific patient subgroups.

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.
