BACKGROUND We investigated the applicability and image quality of contrast-enhanced coronary artery visualization by multislice spiral CT using retrospective ECG gating. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-five patients in sinus rhythm (significant coronary artery stenoses ruled out by invasive angiography) were studied with a multislice spiral CT (Siemens SOMATOM Volume Zoom). In inspiration (mean breath-hold, 37 seconds), a volume data set of the heart was acquired (intravenous contrast agent; 4 x 1… CONTINUE READING
