Abstract

The first case was a 68-year-old woman who had acute migratory pain from back to anterior chest and the second case was 66-year-old man with a cardiac tamponade. Two cases were demonstrated with a low density area of the left ventricular postero-lateral wall with conventional contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CE-CT) performed to differentiate the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome and acute aortic dissection. Subsequent coronary angiograms showed the lesions of left circumflex. These cases of early contrast-defect corresponded to a decreased myocardial blood flow with AMI. CE-CT image facilitated the diagnosis of AMI preceding CAG examination.
