According to this
study, 16-slice CTA has a fairly high false-positive rate. Conversely, the false-negative rate is quite low. This means the test can more accurately tell you if you don't
have coronary disease, but due to artifacts, it is less accurate in telling you if you do
64-slice CTA may be more accurate
, but there is still a fairly high false-positive rate.
