OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the feasibility of performing a comprehensive cardiac computed tomographic (CT) examination incorporating stress and rest myocardial perfusion imaging together with coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA). BACKGROUND Although cardiac CT can identify coronary stenosis, very little data exist on the ability(More)
Characterization of subacute and convalescent fibrotic burden in the remote myocardium after acute infarction provides strong and incremental prediction of changes in left and right functions and final infarct size, incremental to knowledge of the subacute infarct size Summary To test the hypothesis that fibrotic burden in remote myocardium quantified by(More)
CMR quantification of infarct tissue heterogeneity and remote myocardial fibrotic burden during convalescent phase following acute myocardial infarction (MI) provided strong and complementary evidence of ventricular arrhythmogenicity from quantitative microvolt T-wave alternans testing (the NHLBI PROSPECT-CMR study) Summary In patients with recent MI,(More)
