    1. Patient Presentation

    • A 36-year-old patient presented with an acute coronary syndrome with elevation of troponin (2ng/mL) following an inflammatory syndrome with fever and cough.
    • CT coronary angiography was performed to rule out a non-ST-elevated acute myocardial
      infarction. A low dose (100 kV) delayed phase with reinjection was performed to look for myocardial
      changes within the myocardium (focal or diffuse delayed enhancement, or late defect).
