OBJECTIVES The applicability of four-detector multislice computed tomography (MSCT) was investigated for evaluating coronary arteries. METHODS MSCT (Somatom Volume Zoom, Siemens) was used to evaluate the coronary arteries in 94 patients. The reconstructed images were analyzed using retrospective electrocardiographic gating to determine the image quality… CONTINUE READING
