Topics & Features ❯ Illustrated Guide to Anomalous Coronary Activity: An Interactive 3D Model
The introduction of 64 slice MDCT has made it possible to routinely image the coronary arteries with isotropic volume acquisition. The increased spatial and temporal resolution of 64 slice MDCT is changing how patients with suspected cardiac disease are evaluated. Many radiologists have had limited training with imaging of the coronary arteries and are not familiar with interpretation of these studies. This exhibit provides detailed and schematic medical illustrations, axial CT and state of the art 3D MDCT volume rendered images, animation, and interactive 3D models, which will demonstrate normal and aberrant anatomy of the coronary arteries in 3 dimensions. This interactive atlas will include a variety of cases, which demonstrate normal and variant anatomy, as well as coronary artery pathology.
