Intravenous coronary angiography with electron beam computed tomography (EBCT) allows for the noninvasive visualisation of coronary arteries. With dedicated computer hardware and software, three-dimensional renderings of the coronary arteries, veins, and other cardiac structures can be constructed from the individual transaxial tomograms. Interest in this technique is growing, and recently a number of clinical studies have been published comparing EBCT coronary angiography with conventional cine-coronary angiography. In this article, image acquisition, postprocessing techniques, and the results of recently published clinical studies are discussed. EBCT coronary angiography is a promising imaging technique of coronary arteries. Currently, it is a reasonably robust technique for the visualization and assessment of the left main and left anterior descending coronary artery. However, at the moment a relatively high proportion of the right and circumflex coronary angiograms are noninterpretable. Improvements in image acquisition and postprocessing techniques are expected to improve visualization and diagnostic accuracy of the technique.
