Abstract
Multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) coronary angiography was performed using a 16-slice MDCT scanner in three children with coronary aneurysms due to Kawasaki disease. Patients were given a β-blocker. Following contrast injection, all data were acquired during a 20-second breathhold. Results were compared with those of conventional coronary angiography performed previously. MDCT provided clear visualization of coronary artery aneurysms, with coronary calcifications but which had not yet progressed to stenotic lesions. Because MDCT allows noninvasive detection and exclusion of coronary obstructions, it may be able to replace repeat conventional angiography as a follow-up study for children with coronary artery disease.
