OBJECTIVES To systematically analyze the influence of technical parameters on quantification of epicardial fat volume (EATV) at cardiac CT. METHODS 153 routine cardiac CT data sets were analyzed using three-dimensional pericardial border delineation. Three image series were reconstructed per patient: (a) CTAD: coronary CT angiography (CTA), diastolic phase; (b) CTAS: coronary CTA, systolic phase; (c) CaScD: non-contrast CT, diastolic phase. EATV was calculated using three different upper… CONTINUE READING
