In brief: CTA better

Although cta is more accurate but it also depends on image quality done by radiology .
If there is two conflicting studies of the carotid artery , then you should get the gold standard conventional arteriography if clinically indicated.

Ct angio is better. You remove operator skill variable out if the picrcture.
However, the interpretation of ur radiologist is another variable that need to considetr.
