Abstract

Contrast-enhanced 16-slice multi-detector row spiral computed tomography (MDCT) has been shown to be useful for non-invasive visualization of aortocoronary bypass grafts (CABG). This new-generation scanner could be a good alternative to the common invasive coronary angiography. In this article, we report a patient operated on with the St. Jude Medical, Inc, Symmetry Bypass System (Aortic Connector System [ACS]) and subsequently studied by MDCT.
