Abstract

INTRODUCTION CT was first introduced in 1972 and the ability to detect human pathology noninvasively using cross-sectional images of the human body transformed nearly all specialties of medicine and surgery. However, it is only recently that technical advances have extended its utility to the diagnosis of cardiac disease. These technical advances have expanded the use of CT to include the assessment of cardiac structure, function, viability, perfusion, and even noninvasive coronary angiography. Cardiac CT is now poised to revolutionizethe practice of cardiology.
