Dual-source computed tomography for assessing cardiac function: a phantom study.

Abstract

PURPOSE To investigate the influence of heart rate and temporal resolution on the assessment of global ventricular function with dual-source computed tomography (DSCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS A dynamic cardiac phantom was repeatedly scanned with a DSCT scanner applying a standardized scan protocol at different heart rates, ranging from 40 to 140 bpm… (More)
