To prospectively evaluate diagnostic accuracy of dual source computed tomography (DSCT) for evaluation of aortic stenosis (AS) and aortic regurgitation (AR) with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) as reference. We evaluated a total of 79 patients who underwent both DSCT and TTE, 40 with aortic valve disease as assessed by TTE, and 39 matched controls. Maximum aortic valve area (AVA) in systole was planimetrically measured with DSCT, and measurements were compared with TTE, as well as maximum… CONTINUE READING
