BD-02: CT Angiography for the early detection of coronary heart disease

Development and validation of CT Angiography for the early detection of coronary heart disease (CHD)

The major aim of sub-project BD02 is to develop and validate new computer tomography procedures which enable representation of the coronary arteries and the detection and quantification of atherosclerotic plaque with enhanced spatial and temporal resolution, higher reproducibility and, very importantly, with less radiation exposure. Siemens AG is undertaking the technical development work, which includes new detector technologies, new image reconstruction processes and new algorithms for software-based automatic diagnostics. The University Hospital Erlangen, will validate new technologies and software products, provide clinical accompaniment for the technical development and give feedback for further development.
