Abstract

Continued improvements in multidetector computed tomographic (CT) scanners have made cardiac CT an important clinical tool that is revolutionizing cardiac imaging. Multidetector CT with submillimeter collimation and gantry rotation times under 0.5 seconds allows the acquisition of studies with high temporal resolution and isotropic voxels. The volumetric data set that is generated can be analyzed with a depth previously not possible, requiring a solid understanding of the cardiac anatomy and its appearance on CT scans and postprocessed images.
