BACKGROUND Multislice spiral computed tomography (MSCT) with retrospectively ECG-gated image reconstruction permits coronary artery visualization. We investigated the method's ability to identify high-grade coronary artery stenoses and occlusions. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 64 consecutive patients were studied by MSCT (4x1 mm cross-sections, 500-ms rotation, table feed 1.5 mm/rotation, intravenous contrast agent, retrospectively ECG-gated image reconstruction). All coronary arteries and… CONTINUE READING
