Evaluation of coronary atheroma by 64-slice multidetector computed tomography: Comparison with intravascular ultrasound and angiography.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent improvements in multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) with 64-slice scanners have allowed acquisition of a coronary study in 5 s to 6 s, with good temporal and spatial resolution. Previous studies have reported an underestimation of plaque burden by MDCT. Whether shorter scan times can allow correct assessment of plaque volume requires… (More)
