UK NICE guidance recommends CT coronary angiography for diagnosis of CAD in patients with atypical or typical angina in its 2016 update of CG95 (Chest pain of recent onset: assessment and diagnosis).

Total coverage of myocardium for stress perfusion has been limited with cardiovascular magnetic resonance technique (CMR).

Presence of transmural perfusion gradient was studied using [15O] H20 PET-CT in 66 patients with angina and correlated with FFR- determined severity.

An important study comparing CTA and combined CTA+CTP with SPECT MPI and invasive angiography.

In this prospective study, led by Prof Newby of University of Edinburgh, evaluated the use of 18F-NaF and 18F-FDG tracers in identification of ruptured and high-risk atherosclerotic plaques using PET-CT.
