Abstract

We explored the clinical value of low-tube voltage prospective second-generation ECG-triggered 320-row CT angiography in infants with complex CHD (37 male, 23 female, aged 0–2 years). The diagnostic accuracy of 320-row CT in complex CHD was 99.4% for intracardiac cardiovascular malformations, 99.8% for extracardiac cardiovascular malformations, and 100% for other malformations. The average subjective overall image quality score for cardiac structures was 3.7 ± 0.5 points. Second-generation 320-row CT angiography with low-tube voltage and prospective ECG-triggered volume target scanning allows accurate diagnosis of cardiovascular anomalies in infants with complex CHD.
