MDCT Useful for In-stent Restenosis

"Sixteen-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is "highly accurate" in the detection of in-stent restenoses and can be more accurate than coronary angiography in some cases. When compared with the accuracy of coronary angiography it was found that the 16-slice MDCT could detect in-stent restenosis with high accuracy. It is a promising method for noninvasive assessment of in-stent restenosis."
