CODE: SSA02-03
SESSION: Cardiac (Coronary CT/MR Angiography)
Quantitative Evaluation of Coronary In-Stent Restenoses with Gemstone High Definition CT in Comparison with Quantitative Coronary Angiography and Intravascular Ultrasound: Preliminary Results
Daniele Andreini MD et al

DATE: Sunday, November 27 2011
TIME: 11:05 AM – 11:15 AM
LOCATION: S502AB
●PURPOSE
Purpose: The assessment of coronary stents with present-generation 64-detector row computed tomography scanners that use filtered backprojection and operating at standard definition of 0.5–0.75 mm (standard definition, SDCT) is limited by imaging artifacts and noise. We evaluated the performance of a novel, high-definition 64-slice CT scanner (HDCT), with improved spatial resolution (0.23 mm) and applied statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR) for the diagnosis of coronary in-stent restenosis (ISR) in comparison with the performance of SDCT. The gold standard was defined by quantitative coronary angiography and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS).

●PURPOSE
Myocardial perfusion defects (PDs) by CT are thought to become more conspicuous on spectral images like those derived from dual-energy CT (DECT), but the two techniques have not been systematically compared in the same patients. We investigated whether DECT improves the detection of PDs compared to single-energy dual-source CT (DSCT) in a group of patients who were studied with both techniques.

LOCATION: S404AB
●PURPOSE
Previous studies reported the ability of computed tomography (CT) to characterize plaque composition based on their Hounsfield Unit (HU) values.

Automatic kV Selection for Radiation Dose Reduction in CT Angiography
Lifeng Yu PhD et al

DATE: Tuesday, November 29 2011
TIME: 10:50 AM – 11:00 AM
LOCATION: E353A
●PURPOSE
Lower kV has a great potential to reduce radiation dose in CT; however, its practical implementation has been hampered by lack of quantitative tools to guide the selection of proper kV and mAs for each patient. Our goal is to assess a novel automatic kV selection tool in reducing radiation dose while maintaining diagnostic quality in CT angiography (CTA).

We evaluated the feasibility of a low contrast-, low radiation dose protocol at cardiac CT using 80 kVp and “hybrid iterative reconstruction algorithm (iDose)” at 256-row CT scanner.
