Coronary artery calcifications (CAC) are frequently observed in patients referred for coronary CT angiography (CTA). Calcification volume (in mm3) can accurately be assessed during catheterization by optical coherence tomography (OCT). The aim of the present study was to investigate the accuracy of CTA-derived assessment of calcification volume as compared with OCT.
