Further study details as provided by GE Healthcare:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value and NPV of CCTA examination who clinically undergo CCTA as part of the medical care when compared to a standard of truth or binary subject outcomes during each follow-up period. [ Time Frame: 12 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine predictive ability of various findings of VISIPAQUE-enhanced CCTA on subject outcome events. [ Time Frame: 12 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
