Cardiac imaging by means of electrocardiographically gated multisection spiral CT: Initial experience RADIOLOGY Ohnesorge, B., Flohr, T., Becker, C., Kopp, A. F., Schoepf, U. J., Baum, U., Knez, A., Klingenbeck-Regn, K., Reiser, M. F. 2000; 217 (2): 564-571


The authors introduce a method for cardiac investigations by using electrocardiographically gated spiral scanning with a four-section computed tomographic system. Three-dimensional images were reconstructed by means of a 250-msec temporal resolution and continuous volume coverage by using a dedicated multisection cardiac volume reconstruction algorithm. Motion-free thin-section volume images were acquired with thin sections and overlapping image increments within a single breath hold. Data segment shifts in time allowed for multiphase imaging.
