Computed tomography has potential to offer accurate, safer method for detecting artery disease
...tially complement invasive coronary angiography is multislice
computed tomography (MSCT), which may achieve a high level of reliability and accuracy in the visualization of the coronary arteries. MSCT is a sophisticated x-ray imaging technique, in which a CT tube and multiple layered detector rows rotate around...
