It is well known that the long-term clinical outcome after myocardial revascularization depends on the patency of the bypass grafts. In the past, invasive coronary angiography was used to assess the status of the grafts and check for graft occlusion. Recently, computed tomography (CT), particularly multidetector CT with electrocardiographic gating, has emerged as an… CONTINUE READING
