BACKGROUND Recent advances in 64-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) provide an opportunity to assess coronary artery disease, left ventricular function and, potentially, valvular heart disease. OBJECTIVE To determine the ability of 64-MDCT to both detect and to quantify the severity of aortic regurgitation (AR), as compared with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). METHODS We evaluated a total of 64 patients (43 males, mean age 63+/-11 years), 30 with varying severities of AR… CONTINUE READING
