Abstract

The capability of the Philips 16-slice MX8000-IDT CT scanner to be used to measure myocardial perfusion was evaluated. As such, initial analysis of regional variation in myocardial values created by a localized stenosis in the LAD coronary artery appears to be evident but requires further study. The limiting factor reducing signal integrity as determined through simulated data was signal spill-over due to left and right ventricle contrast flow, the temporal resolution defined by the heart motion and acquisition time, and the out-of-sync ECG-gating relative to the cardiac cycle over the duration of the scan.
