OBJECTIVES We investigated whether transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) assisted with a computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) algorithm was superior to TEE in diagnosing left atrial (LA)/left atrial appendage (LAA) thrombi in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) in a single prospective study. METHODS Transesophageal echocardiography was performed in patients with AF, and images were reconstructed. Gray level co-occurrence matrix-based features were calculated and then classified using an… CONTINUE READING
