Volume visualization of the ascending thoracic aorta using isotropic MDCT data: Protocol optimization

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to review in detail the optimization of data acquisition, reconstruction, and postprocessing for imaging the ascending aorta with 64- and dual-source 128-MDCT. CONCLUSION. Interpretative success necessitates careful adherence to protocols that maximize dataset resolution and relies on routine use of all of the postprocessing tools available to optimally evaluate the ascending aorta, aortic valve, heart, and coronary arteries.
