OBJECTIVE To investigate the ability of 16-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) to assess coronary artery bypass graft patency and to detect bypass stenosis by comparison with coronary angiography. METHODS Thirty patients underwent both conventional coronary bypass angiography and retrospective ECG gated 16-slice multidetector computed tomography after surgery using 0.4 seconds rotation time and 1.25 mm slice thickness. RESULTS Among a total of 107 bypass grafts, 101 grafts (94.4… CONTINUE READING
