Abstract

In lowâ€"intermediate-risk symptomatic patients with HCM, both NST and CCTA are acceptable diagnostic tools for the evaluation of myocardial ischemia. In the presence of nuclear perfusion defect, CCTA can be used to rule out significant epicardial stenosis. Presence of significant major epicardial artery stenosis on CCTA or high-risk patients could be considered for invasive angiography.
