ABSTRACT
The article provides information on multislice spiral computed tomography (MSCT) coronary angiography, which is a promising non-invasive technique for the detection of coronary stenoses. The advent of the technically improved 16 row MSCT scanner, with higher spatial and temporal resolution, has permitted more reliable detection of coronary plaques and significant obstructive coronary lesions. It appears likely that MSCT coronary angiography will mature into a non-invasive diagnostic tool that will become integrated into the management of patients with known or suspected coronary atherosclerosis. This article will focus on the basics of the scanner, the diagnostic performance, and potential future applications.
