The scanning technique used in our institute is as follows: The amount of contrast media is 3ml/s (flow rate) x scan time, and pre-scan delay is determined by test bolus. Retrospective reconstruction is given at diastolic phases on 70%, 75% and 80% of R-R interval at first, using multi-sector reconstruction method in the patients whose heart rate is higher than 65 and half reconstruction method in those who under 65.
