The trial will investigate the accuracy of Dual Source CT coronary angiography to detect coronary artery stenoses in patients with chest pain who have, based on clinical criteria, an intermediate likelihood for the presence of coronary artery stenoses. No beta blockers will be used to lower the heart rate for the examination. The hypothesis is that Dual Source CT will allow the detection of vessels with at least one coronary artery stenosis with a sensitivity of more than 90%.

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Multicenter Evaluation of Coronary Dual Source CT Angiography in Patients With Intermediate Risk of Coronary Artery Stenoses

Further study details as provided by University of Erlangen-Nürnberg Medical School:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Accuracy for the detection of coronary artery stenoses [ Time Frame: 72 hours ]
    Invasive coronary angiography will be preformed within 72 hours to verify coronary CT angiography results.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of Ultravist 370 and Ultravist 300 for coronary CT angiography [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
    Patients will be monitored for one hour after injection of Ultravist 370 and Ultravist 300 intravenously to assess safety and detect side effects.
