The predominant risk of coronary CTA is radiation exposure. However, newer techniques are now allowing for reduction of radiation doses from 13–18 mSv (64-MDCT, dual source) or higher (256 or 320 MDCT), to doses now averaging only 2–3 mSv with prospective axial gating. This technique will allow for markedly reduced doses of radiation; however, only a small range of images within the cardiac cycle are available. With this new technique, evaluation of ejection fraction and wall motion is not possible, and significant motion artifacts cannot be overcome by evaluating different phases of the cardiac cycle, as is currently done with retrospective triggering with all phases available for analysis.

While all modalities have demonstrated that progression of atherosclerosis is affected by medical management, regression or non-progression on quantitative invasive angiography is the only methodology that has been conclusively linked with a significant reduction in morbidity and mortality. Hence, progression of CAC on cardiac CT, a non-invasive imaging modality that provides a low radiation dose, may prove very useful in assessing future risk of events if the initial experience is confirmed in further studies.
