A 42-year-old male patient, with a history of uncontrolled diabetes, was admitted to the hospital due to a sudden onset of acute xiphodynia that had been radiating to the chest and back for the past ten hours. CT angiography (CTA) was requested for a comprehensive evaluation.
The outcomes by Siemens Healthineers customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting.
