Cardiac illnesses, and particularly coronary artery ailment, are the top explanation for loss of life and morbidity in industrialized international locations. the advance of non-invasive imaging ideas for the center and the coronary arteries has been thought of a key point in enhancing sufferer care. A leap forward in cardiac imaging utilizing CT happened in 1998, with the creation of multi-slice computed tomography (CT). due to the fact then, remarkable advances in functionality have taken position with scanners that gather as much as sixty four slices in keeping with rotation. This e-book discusses the state of the art advancements in multi-slice CT for cardiac imaging in addition to those who might be expected sooner or later. It serves as a complete paintings that covers all facets of this know-how, from the technical basics and photo evaluate the entire strategy to medical symptoms and protocol concepts. This absolutely transformed moment variation attracts at the most up-to-date scientific adventure got with sixteen- and 64-slice CT scanners by way of world-leading specialists from Europe and the USA. it's also "hands-on" adventure within the kind of 10 consultant scientific case experiences, that are incorporated at the accompanying CD. As another spotlight, the newest result of the very lately brought dual-source CT, which could quickly characterize the CT know-how of selection for cardiac functions, are awarded. This e-book won't simply persuade the reader that multi-slice cardiac CT has arrived in scientific perform, it is going to additionally make an important contribution to the schooling of radiologists, cardiologists, technologists, and physicists—whether novices, skilled clients, or researchers.

The left pulmonary artery gives rise to the apical and posterior arteries of the apicoposterior segment and the anterior segment artery of the left upper lobe. The lingular artery and the superior segmental artery of the lower lobe arise from the interlobular portion of the left pulmonary artery. The remainder of the artery divides into the four basal segment arteries. Pulmonary Veins. In conventional normal anatomy, single right and left superior and inferior pulmonary veins drain into the left atrium (Fig.

MV Mitral valve with anterior (aML) and posterior (pML) leaflets. LCA Left coronary artery and valve tissue or streak artifacts related to highdensity contrast agent in the right atrium, it is rarely well-delineated on CT images (Fig. 3f). Mitral Valve. In contrast to the other cardiac valves, the mitral valve has only two leaflets. The anterior leaflet is large and semicircular, and, like the anterior tricuspid leaflet, it partially separates the ventricular inflow and outflow tracts. Unlike its right-sided counterpart, the mitral valve leaflets are usually well-depicted on CT.

This ramus intermedius is analogous to a diagonal branch and it usually supplies the anterolateral free wall. The LAD passes down the cardiac midline along the anterior interventricular groove to the cardiac apex. Its major branches are the septal and diagonal branches. The septal branches, which supply the anterior and apical septum, vary in size, but they are rarely identified on CT. There is a wide variability in the number and size of the diagonal branches. Unlike the septal branches, one to three diagonal branches, which supply the anterior left ventricular free wall, are usually well seen on CT (Figs.
