Multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) coronary angiography has been reported as an effective alternative to invasive conventional coronary angiography (CCA) for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, in previous reports, the diagnostic accuracy of MSCT has not been significant enough to be of benefit in symptomatic patients. The aim of this study was to identify the usefulness of 320-slice computed tomography coronary angiography (320-CTA) for symptomatic patients in terms of the diagnostic accuracy of 320-CTA and the prevalence of vasospastic angina pectoris (VSAP) within the study cohort.
