Title: K-edge subtraction angiography with synchrotron x-rays: Final technical report, (February 1, 1984 to January 31, 1987)

Abstract

The aim was the development of an angiographic method and appropriate equipment for imaging with x-rays the coronary arteries in a non-invasive manner. Successive steps involved studies with phantoms, live animals and finally with human subjects. Clinical evaluation of human coronary arteries remains a goal of this and a continuing project, and steps along the way to such an achievement are in process. Transvenous injection of a dye using the method of iodine dichromography near 33.2 keV, the K-edge of iodine, forms the basis of the method. 11 refs.
