Arya Iranmanesh, Geoffrey D. Rubin
Imaging the heart and its associated structures is among the most challenging applications for computed tomography. This chapter begins with basic anatomy and key physiological properties of the heart that are important for cardiac CT. The next section focuses on the characteristics of CT scanners that influence the quality of cardiac CT images and key imaging strategies for achieving high-quality results. Finally, a range of common clinical applications for cardiac CT are discussed.
