Abstract

We report the case of a 49-year-old man with a history of diabetes and hypertension who presented to the emergency room with intermittent chest pain radiating to the back for one day. An electrocardiogram-gated CT aortogram excluded the emergency department's primary consideration of aortic dissection, but incidentally revealed a myocardial perfusion defect and corresponding coronary artery stenosis. Cardiac catheterization performed the following day confirmed the CT findings and the patient underwent angioplasty and stent placement. We show that despite a different protocol than coronary CTA or myocardial perfusion CT, a gated CTA for dissection (CT aortogram) is capable of detecting resting perfusion abnormalities in patients presenting to the emergency room with chest pain.
