1. Patient presentation

  • A 36-year-old patient presented with an acute coronary syndrome with elevation of troponin
    (2ng/ml) following a 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).
