MSCT matches cardiac MRI for emergency myocardial infarction assessment

Multislice CT is just as accurate as MRI in assessing myocardial infarct size in an emergency setting, according to a recent study conducted by researchers in France and the U.S. The latest data validate previous findings suggesting delayed-enhancement myocardial CT correlates well with measures of infarction size done with cardiac MR. Infarct size is one [...]

Calcium score in MSCT Cardiac Imaging

Multi Slice CT Cardiac Imaging Calcium scoring is a technique where the extent of calcification in the coronary arteries is measured and scored. There is a direct correlation between the extent of calcium in the coronary arteries and the risk of a future cardiac event. For example, a calcium score of more than 400 is [...]
