Whole Body PET

Coronary CTA on the Somatom Force produces high-resolution stent imaging with a 0.18 second scan at 70 kV exposing the patient to just 0.43 mSv. The patient's heart rate varied between 58 to 70 bmp during the exam. Color image shows two long stents. The curved MPR image in grayscale shows the details in the LAD stent.
