BACKGROUND We evaluated the assessability of contemporary stent platforms by 64-slice multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT). METHODS Patients undergoing coronary stenting were included in a prospective protocol of MDCT imaging within 48 hr of stent implantation. MDCT data were acquired using a "Sensation 64" MDCT scanner (Siemens Medical Solutions, Forchheim, Germany). Stent assessability was assessed by two independent blinded observers and disagreement was resolved by a third observer… CONTINUE READING
