Recent research has identified the assessment of myocardial
perfusion and viability as another promising CT application for the
comprehensive diagnosis of coronary heart disease. In this book,
the first to be devoted to this novel application of CT, leading
experts from across the world present up-to-date information and
consider future directions. After short sections outlining the
state of the art in the traditional applications of CT to image
structure and function, the full range of CT techniques that may be
employed to evaluate the myocardial blood supply are discussed in
detail. Similarly, diverse CT approaches for the assessment of
myocardial viability are described, with careful consideration of
the available experimental and clinical evidence and the role of
quantitative imaging. Protocol recommendations that will be of
invaluable practical assistance are also provided.
