Abstract/OtherAbstract:
New visualization methods are helpful in the noninvasive diagnosis of heart diseases. However, sometimes epicardial and endocardial leads can cause problems due to a large number of artifacts. Based on the presented case, we conclude that it is possible to perform multi-slice computed tomography of coronary arteries despite the coexistence of transvenous and epicardial leads.
