Multidetector computed tomographic angiography of the cardiovascular system

By Joshua Burrill, Zaid Dabbagh, Frank Gollub and Mohamed Hamady

Abstract

The introduction of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is considered a dramatic development in CT imaging that has direct implication in the imaging of various systems, in particular the cardiovascular system. The advantages of MDCT are an enormous increase in imaging acquisition speed, more coverage of the patient, and high spatial resolution. This article reviews the recent developments in CT angiography and discusses the clinical application relevant to diagnosis and endovascular treatment of cardiovascular diseases
