This review aims to discuss dynamic CT myocardial perfusion as a new technique in the assessment of CAD. Read more

Organ Dose and Attributable Cancer Risk in Lung Cancer Screening with Low-Dose CT.

posted by Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R. | Mar 22, 2017
Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R.

Purpose: Lung cancer screening with CT has been recently recommended for decreasing lung cancer mortality. The radiation dose of CT, however, must be kept as low as reasonably achievable for reducing potential stochastic risks from ionizing radiation. The purpose of this study was to calculate individual patients’ lung doses and … Read more

Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Objective: To evaluate quantitative markers derived from coronary CT angiography (coronary CTA) for the prediction of major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Read more

Low contrast medium-volume third-generation dual-source CT angiography for transcatheter aortic valve replacement planning.

posted by Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD | Mar 12, 2017
Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Purpose: To investigate feasibility, image quality and safety of low-tube-voltage, low-contrast-volume comprehensive cardiac and aortoiliac CT angiography (CTA) for planning transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Read more

Prospective Randomized Comparison of High-pitch CT at 80 kVp Under Free Breathing with Standard-pitch CT at 100 kVp Under Breath-Hold for Detection of Pulmonary Embolism.

posted by Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R. | Mar 7, 2017
Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R.

Rationale and Objectives: To prospectively compare high-pitch computed tomography (HPCT) under free breathing (FB) with standard-pitch CT (SPCT) under breath-hold (BH) for detection of pulmonary embolism (PE). Read more

Correction Factors for CT Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring Using Advanced Modeled Iterative Reconstruction Instead of Filtered Back Projection.

posted by Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD | Mar 2, 2017
Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Rationale and Objectives: Iterative reconstruction (IR) computed tomography (CT) techniques allow for radiation dose reduction while maintaining image quality. However, CT coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores may be influenced by certain IR algorithms. The aim of our study is to identify suitable correction factors to ensure consistency between IR and … Read more

Patient Comfort During Contrast Media Injection in Coronary CT Angiography Using Varying Contrast Media Concentrations and Flow Rates: Results From the EICAR Trial.

posted by Marco Das, M.D. | Feb 26, 2017
Marco Das, M.D.

Purpose: Pain sensation and extravasation are potential drawbacks of contrast media (CM) injection during computed tomographic angiography. The purpose was to evaluate safety and patient comfort of higher flow rates in different CM protocols during coronary computed tomographic angiography. Read more
