A 67-year-old male patient, with a history of peripheral arteriosclerosis obliterans and inferior wall myocardium infarction, had been treated with an interventional stenting placed in the left circumflex artery (LCx) #13–14. A comprehensive cardiac CT study, including coronary CT angiography (cCTA), stress myocardial dynamic perfusion, and delayed enhancement, was ordered to simultaneously evaluate both the coronary artery and the myocardium.
