Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Tools have been developed to accurately diagnose and evaluate coronary artery disease. Coronary CT angiography (CCTA) provides detailed imaging to deliver precise analysis and prognostic information. We sought to compare the radiation dose from a 256-detector-row CT scanner with that from a 64-detector-row CT scanner across a similar profile of patients.
