The authors introduce a method for cardiac investigations by using electrocardiographically gated spiral scanning with a four-section computed tomographic system. Three-dimensional images were reconstructed by means of a 250-msec temporal resolution and continuous volume coverage by using a dedicated multisection cardiac volume reconstruction algorithm. Motion-free thin-section volume images were acquired with thin sections and overlapping image increments within a single breath hold. Data segment shifts in time allowed for multiphase imaging.
