CT scans were obtained with a Cine-CT Scanner that uses a rapidly moving focused electron beam. The 50-msec CT scans were obtained at two transverse levels simultaneously through the hearts of a series of four normal dogs and six patients, four with coronary artery disease and two with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Two scanning mode options were chosen. Myocardial wall thickening and motion were studied by obtaining ten 50-msec CT exposures during one heart-beat within less than one second (cine… CONTINUE READING
