In a newly developed dual-source computed tomography system (DSCT) the relation of heart rate and image quality and the possible advantages of the system's superior temporal resolution in the evaluation of left ventricular parameters as compared to results of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were assessed. Coronary CT angiography was performed using a DSCT (Somatom Defintion, Siemens Medical Solutions, Forchheim, Germany) in 21 patients (mean age 62+/-8; 15 male, 6 female). Image… CONTINUE READING
