By Matthijs Oudkerk, Maximilian F Reiser, Albert L. Baert

This is often the second one version of the 1st to be had monograph on coronary radiology. according to contemporary advances, this version areas precise emphasis at the function of non-invasive strategies, designated info being supplied on CT angiography with multidetector and dual-source tomography, 2nd and 3D visualization thoughts, and MR coronary angiography. Sections on invasive imaging recommendations and coronary calcification are integrated. top of the range colour pictures praise the textual content.

Occasionally this condition gives rise to symptoms of angina. The usual treatment in these cases is betablockers, placement of a coronary stent or bypass surgery. 3 Coronary Artery Anomalies Presenting in the Adult Coronary artery anomalies account for approximately 1% of all adult cases undergoing coronary angiography; however, some of these cases are missed on initial angiography.

Ligabue, and F. Zijlstra An anomalous origin of the CX from the right aortic sinus or as proximal branch of the RCA is frequently encountered (Figs. 57). In almost every case, the anomalous CX courses behind the aortic root to its normal distributional area, without the risk of interarterial compression, and thus, without risk of myocardial ischemia or sudden death. A frequently seen anomaly is a high origin of the RCA or LCA. A high takeoff is defined by an origin above the junctional zone between the sinus of Valsalva and the tubular part of the ascending aorta.

There is relatively little information available on the documentation of unnecessary coronary angiograms, which is not the same as the number of normal coronary angiograms. Studies have reported figures of between 2% and 58% of unnecessary procedures performed. It is well established that the risk of coronary angiography rises with age and the degree of severity of the coronary and cardiac disease present. It is important that patients should be properly investigated prior to coronary angiography in order to reduce these risks and to reduce the number of events.
