While coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) has high diagnostic performance to identify and exclude obstructive coronary artery disease, it is susceptible to false-positive results and non-interpretable studies, and requires the use of ionizing radiation. New methods of image reconstruction and post-processing have the potential to significantly improve image quality, reduce the number of non-interpretable studies, and improve the diagnostic accuracy of CCTA. In this manuscript, we will review current and novel technologies for image reconstruction and post-processing that may improve the image quality of CCTA.
