BACKGROUND The 256-multislice CT (256MSCT) obtains volumetric data with 128-mm coverage in a single rotation. This coverage allows satisfactory visualization of the whole heart, allowing the 256MSCT to visualize the cardiac chambers and coronary arteries by cine scan without ECG gating. These characteristics provide a solution to the problems of MSCT. Although a wider beam width provides more efficient imaging over a wider coverage area, patient doses with the 256MSCT are of considerable… CONTINUE READING
