Abstract Background To investigate whether aortic valve calcification (AVC) scoring performed with different workstation platforms generates comparable and thus software-independent results. Methods In this IRB-approved retrospective study, we included 100 consecutive patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis undergoing CT prior to transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Two independent observers performed AVC scoring on non-enhanced images with commercially available software platforms of four...

BackgroundComputed tomography (CT) for excluding acute aortic syndrome (AAS) and pulmonary embolism (PE) simultaneously in patients with chest pain could be used to exclude coronary artery disease (CAD).PurposeTo evaluate the frequency of further testing for CAD in patients receiving a CT in the emergency department (ED) for simultaneous evaluation for AAS and PE.Material and MethodsThis retrospective study was conducted over a three-year period including all patients with acute chest pain visit...

Background: To evaluate usability of slice-reduced sequential computed tomography (CT) compared to standard high-resolution CT (HRCT) in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) for qualitative and quantitative assessment of interstitial lung disease (ILD) with respect to (I) detection of lung parenchymal abnormalities, (II) qualitative and semiquantitative visual assessment, (III) quantification of ILD by histograms and (IV) accuracy for the 20%-cut off discrimination. Methods: From standard ches...

Abstract Rationale and Objectives To evaluate the frequency and relevance of hypodense myocardium (HM) encountered in patients undergoing chest-pain CT in the emergency department (ED). Material and Methods In this IRB-approved retrospective study, ECG-gated chest-pain CT examinations of 300 consecutive patients (mean age 60 ± 17 years) presenting with acute chest-pain to our ED were evaluated. Once ST-segment elevation infarction was excluded, chest-pain CT including the coronary arteries (rule...

ObjectivesThe aims of this study were to introduce the measure noise texture deviation as quantitative parameter for evaluating iterative reconstruction (IR)–specific artifacts in computed tomography (CT) images and to test whether IR-specific artifacts, quantified through this measure, are reduced

Purpose To prospectively develop individualized low-volume contrast media (CM) protocols adapted to tube voltage in patients undergoing computed tomographic (CT) angiography of the aorta. Materials and Methods The study was approved by the institutional review board and local ethics committee. All patients provided written informed consent. CT angiography was performed by using automated attenuation-based tube voltage selection (ATVS) (range, 70-150 kVp; 10-kVp increments). Iodine attenuation cu...

Abstract Background This study aims to determine whether the quantification of myocardial fibrosis in patients with Fabry disease (FD) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) using a late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) singlebreath-hold three-dimensional (3D) inversion recovery magnetic resonance (MR) imaging sequence is comparable with a clinically established two-dimensional (2D) multi-breath-hold sequence. Methods In this retrospective, IRB-approved study, 40 consecutive patients (18 male; mean a...

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to investigate the magnitude of dose optimization for a manufacturer-recommended urolithiasis protocol in a second-generation dual-source CT scanner. MATERIALS AND METHODS. Custom renal phantoms with 24 stones were scanned using the manufacturer-provided dual-energy CT protocol (tube A, 100 kVp and 210 reference mAs; tube B, 140 kVp and 162 reference mAs) and seven dose-optimized protocols in which the reference tube current–time product setting of tube ...
