This study analyzed the regional pattern of right ventricular (RV) dysfunction on transthoracic echocardiograms in patients with and without acute pulmonary embolism. Quantitative (centerline) and qualitative (wall motion score) analyses of segmental RV free wall motion were performed on a "training" cohort of 41 patients (group 1), including 14 patients(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate solid renal tumor sizes before and after treatment with radiofrequency (RF) thermal ablation to assess for immediate changes on cross-sectional imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS Medical records were retrospectively reviewed in consecutive patients who underwent percutaneous image-guided RF thermal ablation for solid renal(More)
BACKGROUND Left ventricular function early after myocardial infarction (MI) predicts subsequent clinical outcome. Nevertheless, the relationship between early changes in left ventricular function and subsequent left ventricular remodeling has not been well defined. METHODS AND RESULTS To explore the temporal relationship between left ventricular function(More)
