Abstract

Coronary artery calcification is a marker of atherosclerosis. Detection and quantification has previously been accomplished with electron-beam computed tomography (CT). Use of spiral CT for this application has been limited by cardiac motion. The authors evaluated a retrospective cardiac- gated postprocessing technique that necessitates no modification of scanner hardware or software. At spiral CT in 26 patients, motion artifact was reduced, coronary arteries were consistently visualized, and quantification of calcification could be performed in those patients with prominent deposits. Coronary artery calcification screening can therefore be offered in sites that have access to only spiral CT.
