The aims of the study were to test the diagnostic accuracy of integrated evaluation of dynamic myocardial computed tomography perfusion (CTP) on top of coronary computed tomography angiography (cCTA) plus fractional flow reserve computed tomography derived (FFRCT) by using a whole-heart coverage computed tomography (CT) scanner as compared with clinically indicated invasive coronary angiography (ICA) and invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR).
