OBJECTIVE To assess the feasibility of quantitative myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in acute myocardial infarction (AMI), using multi-row detector CT (MDCT) with a model-based deconvolution method. DESIGN, SETTING, PATIENTS AND INTERVENTIONS: Fifteen normal subjects with normal coronary arteries and 26 patients with AMI after reperfusion therapy(More)
The diagnosis and treatment of fatty liver disease requires accurate quantification of the amount of fat in the liver. Image-based methods for quantification of liver fat are of increasing interest due to the high sampling error and invasiveness associated with liver biopsy, which despite these difficulties remains the gold standard. Current computed(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of x-ray tube current on the accuracy of cerebral perfusion parameters obtained by CT perfusion studies using multi-detector row CT (MDCT). Following the standard CT perfusion study protocol, continuous (cine) scans (1 s/rotation x 60 s) consisting of four 5 mm thick contiguous slices were performed(More)
