Abstract

PARGA FILHO, José Rodrigues et al. Dynamic myocardial perfusion imaging by dual-source computed tomography. Arq. Bras. Cardiol. [online]. 2012, vol.98, n.3, pp. 54-58. ISSN 0066-782X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0066-782X2012000300014.

We report a dual-source computed tomography study of dynamic and quantitative myocardial perfusion in a 44-year-old patient with previous documented coronary artery disease. Quantitatively, the tomography showed myocardial perfusion deficit in the territories with significant coronary stenosis, confirmed by computed tomography angiography and conventional angiography. Dual-source computed tomography allowed dynamic perfusion and anatomic evaluation in a single study during the follow-up of this patient.

Keywords : Myocardial reperfusion; computed tomography; coronary disease; evaluation.
