CT coronary angiography is a reliable technique to detect coronary stenoses in patients with sinus rhythm presenting with atypical chest pain, stable or unstable angina pectoris, or non–ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and suggest that this noninvasive technique can now be considered an alternative to invasive diagnostic coronary angiography in selected patients.
In simple terms this new procedure is proven to be accurate and safer than invasive procedure for people in the above mentioned categories.
IMO your visit with your cardiologist will be to discuss the results of the scan and what or what you do not have to do for follow-up.
If the scan had shown anything life threatening you would not be home writing to us so that appears to be a good sign.
Cardiologists would be negligent to send you home if the findings indicate severe, life threatening disease.
I hope this helps you a little.
