BACKGROUND The usefulness of thin-slice multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) has been highly expected to assess the lumens of coronary artery stents. We evaluated the usefulness of 16-slice MDCT to assess the in-stent lumen after coronary artery stenting. METHODS In 42 consecutive patients after coronary artery stenting, retrospective ECG-gated CT-angiography using 16-slice MDCT (0.5-s rotation time, 16x0.625-mm detector collimation) was performed. The qualitative assessability of the… CONTINUE READING
