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).
