PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of the body mass index (BMI) on coronary artery opacification in 64-slice CT. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty-two patients retrospectively underwent ECG-gated 64-slice CT coronary angiography (tube potential 120 kV, tube current time product 650 mAs) after intravenous injection of 80 ml of iodinated contrast agent (320 mg/ml,(More)

The aim of the study was to determine the impact of vessel attenuation on quantitative 64-slice computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA). CTCA and invasive quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) were performed in 100 consecutive patients (42 women, 58 men; mean age 64.4+/-9.4 years; age range 39-87 years). In QCA, stenoses were quantified with(More)

We compared the measurements of the aortic valve area (AVA) using dual-source computed tomography (DSCT) in patients with mid to severe aortic stenosis to measurements using transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and invasive hemodynamic assessment. A total of 50 patients (mean age 73 +/- 10 years) with suspected aortic stenosis were included. The computed(More)
