Coronary artery disease is the leading cause for morbidity and mortality. Tools have been developed to accurately diagnose and evaluate coronary artery disease. Coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) scans provide detailed imaging along with analysis to in order to deliver precise analysis and prognostic information. We sought to evaluate the radiation doses of the 256 detector CT scanner to a 64 slice scanner across a similar profile of patients.
