OBJECTIVES This study sought to compare tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) with velocity-encoded (VE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony assessment. BACKGROUND Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is proposed for patients with heart failure, depressed LV function, and a wide QRS complex. Selection is based mainly on electrocardiogram criteria, but recent data suggest that intraventricular dyssynchrony may be preferred for selection. An LV dyssynchrony can… CONTINUE READING
