Noninvasive coronary angiography by magnetic resonance imaging, electron-beam computed tomography, and multislice computed tomography



Noninvasive coronary angiography by magnetic resonance imaging, electron-beam computed tomography, and multislice computed tomography



American Journal of Cardiology 88(2a): 70e-73e



In recent years, several techniques for noninvasive imaging of the coronary artery lumen (noninvasive coronary angiography) have been developed. These techniques include magnetic resonance imaging, electron-beam computed tomography, and, most recently, multislice computed tomography. Each of these techniques has specific advantages and disadvantages. Currently, EBCT seems to permit the most robust coronary artery imaging. In the future, imaging modalities will have to be further improved and validated in order to define specific areas for potential clinical applications.
