Study Description
Brief Summary:
The study aims at pooling a large population of patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) who underwent Computed Tomography Coronary Angiography (CTCA) and who were adequately stratified in the first place. Then the investigators will be able to assess the incremental value of CTCA in the stratification of prevalence of disease (non obstructive/obstructive) and prognosis of patients with suspected CAD). The added information to current evidence is how reliable and to what extent CTCA can define the actual burden of disease and cardiovascular risk.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. MACE/Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events [ Time Frame: at least 12 months ]
    Cardiac Death, Unstable Angina requiring Hospitalization, Acute Myocardial Infarction

  2. Cardiovascular risk shifting [ Time Frame: at time 0 ]
    Prevalence of cardiovascular risk category shifting based on coronary plaque burden

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Coronary Revascularizations [ Time Frame: after more than 90 days ]
    Coronary Revascularizations occurred at follow-up after CTCA (i.e. PCI/Percutaneous Coronary Revascularization and CABG/Coronary Artery Bypass Graft)

  2. Prevalence of outliers [ Time Frame: at time 0 ]
    Prevalence patients lying completely outside the conventional risk stratification (pts with >3 risk factors and no CAD at CTCA and pts with no risk factors and >5 coronary segments with CAD)
