Cardiac CT Imaging: Diagnosis of Cardiovascular Disease by Matthew J. Budoff MD, FACC, FAHA, FSCCT (auth.), Matthew J.

By Matthew J. Budoff MD, FACC, FAHA, FSCCT (auth.), Matthew J. Budoff, Jerold S. Shinbane (eds.)

The finished evaluation of cardiovascular constitution and serve as with computed tomography (CT) has improved at an remarkable cost because of advances in scanning expertise and photograph processing. Given the turning out to be value of cardiovascular CT, this e-book collates all appropriate imaging findings and provides them in a clinically appropriate and functional demeanour applicable for the spectrum of physicians who diagnose and deal with heart problems. The chapters were written through an across the world popular staff of contributing authors and current dialogue and photographs which represent the whole spectrum of cardiovascular CT.

The prospectively triggered image uses a “step and shoot” system, similar to EBCT. This obtains images at a certain time of the cardiac cycle (see Chapter 2), which can be chosen in advance, and then only one image per detector per cardiac cycle is obtained. This greatly reduces radiation dose, as the scanner is not on continuously (such as retrospective gating above). This has been used for quite a while with coronary calcium scanning, as multiple phases were not required to derive a ­calcium score.
