  • BACKGROUND High heart rates and radiation sensitivity have limited the use of coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) in pediatric patients. OBJECTIVE A contemporary evaluation of image quality and reduction in radiation exposure with dual-source CT technology has not been reported in a large cohort of pediatric patients undergoing coronary angiography. METHODS Consecutive coronary CTA scans (n = 71) in 70 pediatric patients were retrospectively reviewed. Metoprolol was administered… CONTINUE READING
