This article summarizes our recent study of the long-term prognostic performance of low-dose coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) with prospective
ECG triggering [1]. Patient stratification using coronary lesion severity in CCTA with low radiation dose accurately predicted the risk of major adverse cardiac events
in the long term.
