The Evaluation of Dual-Energy Myocardial Perfusion Imaging for the Detection of Acute Myocardial Infarction by Using the Second Generation Dual-Source CT in a Porcine Model

Abstract

Cardiac computed tomography (CT) has been shown a non-invasive tool with high diagnostic accuracy for the detection of coronary arterial stenosis [1]. However, the hemodynamic significance of many lesions is uncertain by Cardiac CT. Furthermore, the presence of calcified atherosclerotic plaque reduces the ability to differentiate significant stenosis from… (More)
