Abstract

 

The SYNTAX score is an angiographic scoring system that is currently used for evaluating the complexity of coronary lesions. Its efficiency in both long-term prognosis and the selection of treatment modalities has been shown in many studies. However, there is little evidence for the use of this scoring system in CT angiography, which has become a part of coronary artery disease practice. Here, we showed that the SYNTAX score could be used in a feasible way in CT angiography.
