Abstract

Single Source Cardiac Computed Tomography (CT) Imaging for evaluation of the coronary arteries occurs in multiple formats; the most common being prospective sequential and retrospective spiral methods. The differences between the two methods include dose to the patient as well as the image acquisition process. Dual source CT or Flashcardiac imaging of the coronary arteries is an additional method currently utilized by many facilities via Siemens® equipment. Dual-source imaging has multiple advantages and few disadvantages. An in-depth comparison between flash (dual-source) imaging and traditional (single-source)cardiac imaging is the purpose of this research.
