Computed Tomography (CT) has long been regarded as a purely anatomical imaging modality. Recent advances on CT technology and Contrast Agents (CA) in both clinical and preclinical cardiac imaging offer opportunities for the use of CT in functional imaging. Combined with modern ECG-gating techniques, functional CT has now become a reality allowing a comprehensive evaluation of myocardial global and regional function, perfusion and coronary angiography. This article aims at reviewing the current status of cardiac CT perfusion and micro-CT perfusion with established and experimental scanners and contrast agents, from clinical practice to the experimental domain of investigations based on animal models of heart diseases.

Abstract

Computed Tomography (CT) has long been regarded as a purely anatomical imaging modality. Recent advances on CT technology and Contrast Agents (CA) in both clinical and preclinical cardiac imaging offer opportunities for the use of CT in functional imaging. Combined with modern ECG-gating techniques, functional CT has now become a reality allowing a comprehensive evaluation of myocardial global and regional function, perfusion and coronary angiography. This article aims at reviewing the current status of cardiac CT perfusion and micro-CT perfusion with established and experimental scanners and contrast agents, from clinical practice to the experimental domain of investigations based on animal models of heart diseases.
