To investigate a rapid and effective method for the examination of coronary CTA in emergency patients requiring coronary CTA examination, who have faster heart rate (≧80 bpm) or cannot cooperate with the examination due to the inability of breath holding at poor physical conditions. Before coronary CTA examination, with the ECG monitoring, intravenous injection of esmolol was given to achieve rapid heart rate reduction. Without the patient's cooperation, coronary CTA examination was then performed in a quick and effective manner using the 640-slice high-speed CT. The diagnosis report was obtained through the subsequent reconstruction analysis using artificial intelligence software. Esmolol injection can rapidly reduce the heart rate of normal people during exercise and at rest, and the steady blood concentration can be reached in 2 minutes. The half-life is about 5 minutes, with short duration and fewer side effects on patients. The diagnostic rate of coronary artery segment using (excellent + good) CTA image of the patients with esmolol and artificial intelligence analysis in the experimental group was 95.4%, while the diagnostic rate was 91.1% in the control group, and there was no significant statistical difference between the two groups (P > 0.05). Esmolol injection can rapidly reduce heart rate in patients with high heart rate, without holding breath or long-term preoperative preparation; the combination with the analysis of subsequent artificial intelligence reconstruction is a new method for rapid and effective coronary CTA examination in all patients.
