The heart's supply of oxygen and nutrients relies on the coronary vasculature, which branches from millimeter-sized arteries down to micrometer-sized capillaries. To date, imaging technologies can only detect large epicardial coronary vessels, whereas the intramural coronary vasculature remains invisible due to cardiac motion. We recently introduced coronary ultrafast Doppler angiography, a noninvasive vascular imaging technology based on ultrafast ultrasound that enables the visualization of epicardial and intramural coronary vasculature in humans. In this letter we describe, using an open-chest swine data set, the adaptive spatiotemporal filtering method that was developed for the detection of slow blood flows embedded in rapid myocardial motion.

To investigate the diagnostic performance of coronary CT angiography derived from dynamic CT myocardial perfusion imaging (CCTA) by third-generation dual-source CT with reference to invasive coronary ...
Non-contrast perfusion ultrasound imaging remains challenging due to spectral broadening of the tissue clutter signal caused by patient and sonographer hand motion. To address this problem, we previou...
Rapid progress has been made in research of cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) technology in the last few years, which might serve as a new method to diagnose coronary artery disease. However, compared with...
The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) with other professional societies developed appropriate use criteria (AUC) for diagnostic coronary angiography. This study aims to examine the appr...
The accuracy of coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography depends upon the degree of coronary enhancement as compared to the background noise. Unfortunately, coronary contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR)...

Patients planned for elective conventional coronary angiography will undergo CT coronary angiography (Dual Source CT) in order to assess the correlation of stenosis detection and therapeut...
Non-invasive evaluation of patients with stable angina and unstable coronary syndromes with transthoracic Doppler echocardiography to evaluate presence of significant coronary stenoses. Bl...
The purpose of this study is to test the ability of a new X-ray technique called CT angiography to identify significant narrowing of the coronary arteries compared to traditional coronary ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the radiation exposure in patients undergoing coronary angiography, and to identify reference values for the main radiation doses parameters.
Radiography of the vascular system of the heart muscle after injection of a contrast medium.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
