OBJECTIVE: This study aims to evaluate the clinical application value of flash spiral mode of high-pitch dual source CT in carotid, cardiac and cerebral vessels combined one-stop imaging.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 100 consecutive patients were given carotid, cardiac and cerebral vessels combined one-stop imaging at flash spiral mode of high-pitch dual source CT. 27 patients received DSA examination of carotid and cerebral vessels, and 38 patients received digital subtraction angiography (DSA) examination of the coronary artery at the same time. Carotid, cardiac and cerebral vessels combined one-stop imaging was compared with “golden standard”, DSA image.

RESULTS: The overall satisfaction rate of coronary arteries, extracranial segment of the carotid artery (CA-E), intracranial segment of the carotid artery (CA-I), and cerebral vessels (anterior, middle, and posterior cerebral artery) were 93%, 99%, 95% and 97% respectively, and the positive rate of hemadostenosis was consistent with DSA. The kappa value indicating consistency of cerebral, carotid and coronary artery vessels was 0.78382, 0.80654, 0.82398, respectively.

CONCLUSIONS: The method of carotid, cardiac and cerebral vessels combined one-stop imaging by flash spiral mode of high-pitch dual source CT can provide high image quality. It comprehensively evaluates stenosis of carotid, cardiac and cerebral vessels, which is of great importance for early intervention in harmful events of the cardia and cerebrovascular disorder.
