Computed tomography of the heart: evaluation of anatomy and function

Journal of the American College of Cardiology

Abstract

Diseases of the heart and blood vessels represent one of the most challenging problems for advanced diagnostic imaging systems. Computed tomographic scanning is potentially an ideal cardiac imaging modality since it is a cross-sectional imaging method with very high resolution. Currently available computed tomographic scanners have exposure speeds of 1 to 5 seconds, which are inadequate for the majority of cardiovascular imaging applications. Nevertheless, a variety of limited computed tomographic scanning techniques have been successfully performed in selected patient subgroups. These methods require the administration of contrast medium injected or infused into a peripheral vein, combined with either dynamic computed tomographic scanning or some form of electrocardiographic gated computed tomography. The newer conventional computed tomographic scanners can display anatomic structures in the heart and great vessels with considerable fidelity and provide not only cross-sectional displays but also, by means of computer manipulation, any selected reconstructed images in oblique, coronal or sagittal projections. Feasibility studies indicate improved accuracy of computed tomographic measurements of cardiac chamber volumes. Physiolo...Continue Reading

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
