Reproducibility of coronary calcium quantification in repeat examinations with retrospectively ECG-gated multisection spiral CT

High reproducibility is a key requirement for coronary calcium scoring in follow-up examinations. We investigated the inter-examination reproducibility of calcium scoring with retrospectively ECG-gated multisection spiral CT (MSCT). Fifty patients were examined twice with MSCT. Slices were reconstructed with retrospective ECG gating in the diastolic phase with 3-mm slice width and ...

Dose reduction in CT examination of children by an attenuation-based on-line modulation of tube current (CARE Dose)

In a controlled patient study we investigated the potential of attenuation-based on-line modulation of the tube current to reduce milliampere values (mAs) in CT examinations of children without loss of image quality. mAs can be reduced for non-circular patient cross sections without an increase in noise if tube current is reduced at those angular positions where the patient ...

Multislice helical CT of the heart with retrospective ECG gating: reduction of radiation exposure by ECG-controlled tube current modulation

Our objective was to evaluate image quality and radiation exposure of retrospectively ECG-gated multislice helical CT (MSCT) investigations of the heart with ECG-controlled tube current modulation. One hundred patients underwent MSCT scanning (Somatom VolumeZoom, Siemens, Forchheim, Germany) for detection of coronary artery calcifications. A continuous helical data set of the heart ...

Unilateral femoral deformity due to a focal fibrous tether

The purpose of this paper is to assess the radiological features of the unilateral angular deformity of the distal end of the femur secondary to a focal fibrous tether. Only five cases of this entity have been reported in the literature. We report another two patients. Magnetic resonance study was performed on one of them, which has not been used in previous cases. Both cases are ...
