Cardiac computed tomography (CT) has evolved rapidly over the last decade into a reliable imaging modality for the non-invasive assessment of coronary artery disease. With the advancement in multi-detector CT technology, there has developed an increasing body of evidence that suggests that the role of cardiac CT can be extended to include functional assessment of the myocardium not only at rest but also during stress. Simultaneous anatomical and functional assessment approaches will have a number of advantages such as evaluation of the transmural extent of myocardial perfusion defects (including small subendocardial perfusion defects), reduced risk associated with multiple sources of radiation, and short image acquisition time. Although initial results hold some promise, CT myocardial perfusion imaging is a modality in the early stages of development and further work and studies are required to define, validate, and optimize this technique. This review will provide an overview of this novel perfusion imaging method, its underlying principles, evolution, limitations and future directions. (<i>Circ J</i> 2012; <b>76:</b> 544-552)<br>
