[The role of multidetector CT in cardiovascular diagnosis: the CT coronary angiography. Current applications].

Abstract

Currently, computed tomographic (CT) imaging of the heart is mainly used for the quantification of coronary artery calcification as an indirect measure of coronary plaque burden and, less frequently, for minimally invasive coronary angiography. Recently, so-called multislice spiral computed tomographic (MSCT) scanners with gantry rotation speeds fast enough… (More)
