In the era of multi-detector, multi-slice, ultra-fast CT units, Cardiac CT now plays a central role in multi-modality imaging of heart disease in conjunction with echocardiography, coronary catheterization, nuclear medicine and MRI. As lower radiation doses are routine, it is also a vital screening tool in the diagnosis and prevention of heart disease. This Quick Self Study is a practical learning module for the advanced procedure of Cardiac CT.
Discussed in detail are; situations when cardiac CT is the test of choice and why, understanding the complex 3D anatomy of the heart, reconstruction and imaging planes, and optimizing patient preparation and imaging protocols to competently perform Cardiac CT.
