Abstract

Background: A method of displaying coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography, which enables evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD) with fewer images and is understandable to the third person, is preferable. Methods and Results: A maximum intensity projection image was created in which contrast media in the ventricles is eliminated, enabling an overview of CAD in a single 3-dimensional (D) image that can be rotated to be viewed at various angles and is easily understood by a third person. Conclusions: A novel method of displaying coronary CT angiography in a single 3-D image has been developed and we believe it should become available for many workstations.
