OBJECTIVES Initial reports indicate that coronary artery lesions might be visualized with high sensitivity and specificity by the use of recently introduced multislice computed tomography (MSCT). Current CT technology offers a temporal resolution of 250 ms. In case of heart rates (HRs) >65 beats/min (bpm), however, the reconstruction software switches from a single-phase algorithm (using data from one heart cycle only) to a biphase algorithm using image data of two consecutive heart cycles… CONTINUE READING
