This entire month, all the posts will discuss "our" way of performing high quality cardiac CT scans, on our 64-slice Siemens Sensation 64 CT scanner, starting from patient preparation, right upto reporting. Though we've had some hiccups on the way, over the last 3 months, we have finally settled down to "one" way of doing things, which is now consistently giving us high-quality studies. Below is one multi-mask vrt image from a typical study showing severe LAD disease.
The discussion will be broken down into the following headings:
1. Patient preparation
3. Reconstruction techniques and creation of good datasets
4. Creation of images
