Assessment of Cardiac Performance by Digital Angiography
Computer enhanced digital angiography (CEDA) allows the cardiologist to quantitate ejection fraction, coronary anatomy, and regional myocardial perfusion. This chapter describes the method by which digital images of the heart are obtained and processed, and the application of this new technology to evaluation of the cardiovascular system.
