Combined Non-invasive Coronary Angiography and Myocardial Perfusion Imaging Using 320 Detector Computed Tomography

2014-08-27 03:20:59 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of multi-detector computed tomography using 320 detectors for identifying the combination of coronary artery stenosis ≥ 50% and a corresponding myocardium perfusion defect in a patient with suspected coronary artery disease compared with conventional coronary angiography and single photon emission computed tomography myocardium perfusion imaging.


The Combined Coronary angiography and myocardial perfusion imaging using 320 detectors computed tomography (CORE-320) was designed as a prospective, multi-center, international, blinded study designed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of multi-detector computed tomography using 320 detectors for identifying coronary artery luminal stenosis and corresponding myocardium perfusion defects in patients with suspected coronary artery disease. The primary analysis will be a comparison of the diagnostic capability of the combination of quantitative 320-MDCT angiography and quantitative perfusion imaging to the combination of conventional coronary angiography and SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging at the patient level. A positive patient will be defined as having at least one vessel with a ≥ 50% diameter stenosis defined by quantitative coronary angiography and a corresponding positive SPECT territorial myocardial perfusion defect.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.

Pathological processes which result in the partial or complete obstruction of ARTERIES. They are characterized by greatly reduced or absence of blood flow through these vessels. They are also known as arterial insufficiency.

Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
