In cardiac imaging, 64-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT), although widely adopted, has serious limitations due to step artefacts and high radiation exposure. The introduction of wide-detector technology for cardiac imaging provides technological improvements together with possibly greater diagnostic accuracy of CT coronary angiography. Current advantages and limitations of wide-detector MDCT scanners are described in Dr. Paul’s Focus on and in the selected literature and e-book, all presented in this month’s newsletter. In addition, as usual, two new clinical cases guide you to the best practical approaches.
