Cardiac CTA

  • 2826 Accesses

Abstract

CT scanners are now able to acquire images rapidly enough to “freeze” the heart in time and clearly delineate the coronary arteries. Their utility has been focused on the differentiation of patients with cardiac and noncardiac chest pain with an emphasis on those patients who have low to intermediate risk for coronary artery disease without EKG changes or enzyme elevation.
