Patients with an intermediate likelihood of coronary artery disease can benefit from both multislice computed tomography and myocardial perfusion imaging, as the two technologies offer diagnostic information that is different from but complementary to one another, a new study concludes.

The findings support integration of the technologies, researchers in the Netherlands conclude in the study that appears in the Dec. 19, issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Several CT manufacturers are already reportedly developing hybrid imaging machines.
