Abstract

In the anatomic evaluation of the coronary arteries by multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT), the classification of the American Heart Association, which divides these vessels into 15–16 segments, including those segments with diameters > 1.5 mm, is often used (Fig. 1.1). In this chapter, a more complex classification will be applied as it provides a more detailed anatomic picture.
