The purpose was to investigate the influence of shorter delay time on the interpatient variability in coronary enhancement and appropriateness of scan timing in coronary CT angiography (CTA) using bolus tracking method with 320-row CT. The bolus tracking scan was performed at the level of the bifurcation of the trachea for first 50 patients (group 1) and at the center level of the diagnostic scan for the last 50 patients (group 2). The CT number of the proximal coronary arteries was measured in… CONTINUE READING
