Abstract

Coronary angiography remains the gold standard for diagnosing obstructive coronary artery disease. However, no standardized, objective, and quantitative classification to assess the quality of coronary angiography exists. In the present report, we sought to establish a novel standardized quantitative classification for the quality of coronary angiography, taking into consideration two main parameters: coronary contrast filling and coronary sinus contrast reflux. Intraobserver and interobserver reproducibility performed among 70 angiograms and 9 readers demonstrated excellent and substantial reproducibility, respectively. The proposed classification may be useful in daily practice, clinician training, and clinical trials.
