Dual source Computerized Tomography (CT) enables twice the temporal resolution as against the single source CT and obviates the need to slow the heart with medications. The ultrafast very low radiation dual source CT scanner appears to be very promising in the rapid evaluation of patients with clinical suspicion for acute coronary syndrome. The technical aspects of this scanner are presented in this seminar.
