OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of dual-source computed tomography (DSCT) for the visualization of the coronary arteries in a population with atrial fibrillation (AF) compared to single-source CT (SSCT) and to explore the impact of patients' heart rate (HR) on image quality (IQ) and reconstruction timing. METHODS Thirty consecutive patients (11(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the image quality and radiation dose of combined heart, head, and neck CT angiography (CTA) using prospectively electrocardiography (ECG)-triggered high-pitch spiral scan protocol, compared with single coronary CTA. MATERIALS AND METHODS 151 consecutive patients were prospectively included and randomly divided into three groups. Group(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic active Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection (CAEBV) is characterized as chronic or recurrent mononucleosis-like symptoms and elevated EBV deoxyribonucleic acid (EBV-DNA) copies. Cardiovascular complications have high morbidity and mortality. The treatment regimen for CAEBV has not been established yet, resulting in poor prognoses. Herein,(More)
Taking the math major students as the subjects, this paper discussed the causal attribution characteristics of success or failure in social intercourse, their expectation changing and emotional reaction. The paper found that: (1) the intercourse results are varied among the students which they attribute to different casual cognitions, no significant(More)
Vibrio mimicus is a pathogen that causes ascites disease in fish. We have previously demonstrated that the outer membrane protein U (OmpU) is an important adhesin in V. mimicus. Here eight specific OmpU-binding phage clones, which presented three different OmpU-binding peptides (designated P1, P2, P3), were screened from a commercially available phage(More)
Objective To evaluate the application of automated tube potential selection technique in high-pitch dual-source CT aortic angiography on a third-generation dual-source CT scanner. Methods Whole aorta angiography were indiated in 59 patients,who were divided into 2 groups using a simple random method:in group 1 there were 31 patients who underwent the(More)
Objective To evaluate the feasibility of a low-dose one-stop-shop cardiac CT imaging protocol with third-generation dual-source CT (DSCT). Methods Totally 23 coronary artery disease (CAD) patients were prospectively enrolled between March to September in 2016. All patients underwent an ATP stress dynamic myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) (data acquired(More)
Methods In a consecutive cohort of 58 patients referred for clinical enhanced cardiac MR, bh-LGE and moco-LGE were collected contemporarily with identical image parameters using a 3.0T scanner. The moco-LGE was acquired just after the bh-LGE while the patients were asked to breathe freely. Images were randomized and scored for image quality (1very poor and(More)
Background For patients with arrhythmia, conventional segmented steady-state free precession sequence (CINE-SSFP) methods may result in poor image quality. Real-time cine could avoid those limitations, however poor spatial and temporal resolutions of conventional sequences have prevented its routine application. Recently a newly developed compressed sensing(More)
Objective  To investigate the optimized range of body mass index (BMI) selection for patients undergoing 70 kV high-pitch dual-source coronary CT angiography (CCTA) on the third-generation dual-source CT (DSCT). Methods  Patients undergoing prospective high-pitch ultra-low contrast media (CM) CCTA on the third-generation DSCT using the automatic tube(More)
