Koronardiagnostik mit der achtzeilen-spiral-computertomographie

Translated title of the contribution: Coronary artery imaging with eight-slice helical CT

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The introduction of multislice helical computed tomography has allowed for noninvasive imaging of the coronary arteries. One important limitation of this method, however, remained examination times of some 40 s in many instances. With the introduction of eightslice CT systems, the entire coronary artery system can now be depicted with high spatial resolution during a single breath hold.
