    Course Description
    The morbidity and mortality associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) is considerable, and the economic burden weighing on society is heavy. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most prevalent type of CVD, and one of the most important means of diagnosing CAD is cardiac computed tomography (CT). Although the large majority of all cardiac CT examinations are performed on patients with known or suspected CAD, new developments in imaging hardware and software, combined with innovative computational and statistical modalities and methods, have improved the diagnostic performance, accuracy, and safety of the modality, thereby expanding the range of potential indications to include both functional and anatomic imaging of such indications as plaque assessment, the diagnosis of stenosis, measurement of epicardial and pericoronary tissue, fractional flow reserve, coronary artery calcium scoring, congenital heart disease, and pre-interventional planning. This article will describe these technical developments and their implications for clinical practice.

    Learning Objectives
    After reading this article, the participant should be able to:

    • Summarize the features of the latest advances in cardiac computed tomography (CCT) hardware and software technologies to enhance image acquisition, evaluation, and archiving.
    • Assess the role of CCT in angiography and emerging extra-coronary applications.
    • Evaluate the advantages and limitations of current technologies and techniques.
