Abstract

The use of an electrocardiographically pulsed spiral computed tomographic protocol significantly reduced the radiation dose to patients who underwent coronary calcium screening. For Agatston scores <10, the interscan variability of such a protocol was significantly lower than that for a sequential acquisition protocol. At higher Agatston scores, the 2 protocols had similar variability characteristics.
