We present our initial clinical experience with a recently introduced 64-detector computed tomography (64-MDCT) scanner that makes use of a periodic motion of the focal spot in the longitudinal direction (z-flying focal spot), which enables it to reach a final spatial resolution of 0.4×0.4×0.4 mm3 and a temporal resolution of 83 ms. A total of 114 patients(More)
Our objective was to retrospectively evaluate the ability of multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) to detect previous myocardial infarctions (MIs) and to correlate necrosis with the status of coronary arteries supplying the infarcted territory. After having clinically evaluated 187 patients referred for ECG-gated MDCT of the coronary arteries, 30(More)
The purpose of this study was to establish the diagnostic value of multidetector–row computed tomography (MDCT) angiography compared with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) for detection and quantification of both main and accessory renal artery stenosis in patients with secondary hypertension. Fifty consecutive patients scheduled for DSA were considered(More)
