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.

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

Diagnostic accuracy of coronary CT angiography using 3rd-generation dual-source CT and automated tube voltage selection: Clinical application in a non-obese and obese patient population.

posted by Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD | Feb 21, 2017
Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Purpose: To investigate diagnostic accuracy of 3rd-generation dual-source CT (DSCT) coronary angiography in obese and non-obese patients. Read more
