Although coronary angiography is recognized as the gold standard in the evaluation of coronary artery disease, there is still need for noninvasive imaging methods to detect and monitor asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic coronary artery disease. With technological improvements in multidetector computed tomography (CT), coronary CT angiography proved to be a potential noninvasive method in this field. This article reviews technological aspects, clinical applications, and indications of coronary CT angiography in the light of the most recent literature.
