Abstract

Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is expected to revolutionize the way the evaluation and work-up of the cardiac patient is performed. Although invasive coronary and cardiac angiography maintains a 0.2-mm spatial resolution versus 0.4-mm in 64-slice MDCT, the emergence of retrospectively electrocardiographic-gated 64-slice MDCT has resulted in high spatial resolutions that are not achievable with other non-invasive cardiac imaging modalities. The purpose of this article is to describe the MDCT qualitative techniques used to evaluate valvular lesions and to describe and illustrate a spectrum of congenital and acquired valvular disease with 64-slice MDCT.
