Infarct identified in the inferior wall of the myocardium

Case Study
Philips CT Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Clinical history

This 24 year-old male was admitted to University Medical Center LSU complaining of atypical chest pain. The EKG showed a suspected inferior wall infarction and elevated troponins. Due to the patient's young age, the physician entertained myocarditis as a suspected diagnosis. The patient was subsequently referred for a gated cardiac CTA scan on the IQon Spectral CT system.

Diagnosis

The monoE images acquired on the IQon Spectral CT showed normal coronary arteries, but also identified a suspicious area that was questionable for an infarct located in the inferior wall of the myocardium.

Clinical significance

The IQon Spectral CT's gated spectral cardiac capabilities enabled the physician to review the spectral cardiac anatomy immediately post scan. The spectral Comprehensive Cardiac software allowed the ability to evaluate the short axis.

 

Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.
