Spiral multislice computed tomography coronary angiography: A current status report
Multislice computed tomography coronary angiography (MSCT-CA) has emerged as a powerful noninvasive diagnostic modality to visualize the coronary arteries and to detect significant coronary stenoses. The latest generation 64-slice computed tomography (CT) scanners is a robust technique which allows high-resolution, isotropic, nearly motion-free coronary imaging. Coronary stenoses are detected with high sensitivity and a normal scan accurately rules out the presence of a coronary stenosis. With the introduction of further novel concepts in CT-technology one may expect that MSCT-CA will become a clinically used diagnostic tool.
