For dynamic studies, 2 adjacent slices are simultaneously imaged at rates of up to 17 frames per second. 5-mm slices, scan speeds as fast as 33 milliseconds, beam power of 140 kV at 1000 mA, and spatial resolution in the 14 line pairs per centimeter (lp/cm) range. 2. A volume-rendered frame from a cine sequence of the heart using ebct. This frame is at 39% of the r-r interval. In this multiphase study, 8 phases were obtained covering the fi rst 460 milliseconds following the r-wave. The right coronary artery is shown to the left along with two of its ventricular branches.
