OBJECTIVE Because an increase in body mass index (weight in kilograms divided by height squared in meters) confers higher image noise at coronary CT angiography, we evaluated a body mass index-adapted scanning protocol for low-dose 64-MDCT coronary angiography with prospective ECG triggering. SUBJECTS AND METHODS One hundred one consecutively registered patients underwent coronary CTA with prospective ECG triggering with a fixed contrast protocol (80 mL of iodixanol, 50-mL saline chaser, flow… CONTINUE READING
