When the ascending aorta is tortuous or the left heart border bulges superiorly, imaging should begin 1 to 2 cm above the carina to allow for a cranial angulation of the proximal left coronary artery (LCA). In a patient with venous bypass grafts or radial artery grafts from the ascending aorta, CTA begins at the top of the aortic arch. When evaluating a patient with internal B through the LAD demonstrates that the proximal calcified plaque results in no more than 50% narrowing (arrow). In this projection, however, the more distal plaque appears to cover a larger portion of the vessel lumen.
