BACKGROUND Few investigators have studied the anatomy of the sinus node artery (SNA) using noninvasive imaging modalities, so the objective of this study was to visualize the in-vivo 3-dimensional anatomical relations of the SNA using dual-source computed tomography (DSCT). METHODS AND RESULTS In the 101 patients included in this study, the visualization rate, anatomical type and diameter of the SNA, the distance between the orifice and coronary artery, and the terminal type of SNA were… CONTINUE READING
