OBJECTIVES To evaluate feasibility and accuracy of a fully automatic algorithm (FAA) for calculating left ventricular volumes and ejection fraction (LVEF) from multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) studies versus a previously validated method based on Simpson's method serving as our reference standard (RS), and left ventriculography (LVG), in patients with acute chest pain (ACP). METHODS 23 patients admitted with ACP underwent ECG-gated MDCT, as well as LVG during their hospitalization… CONTINUE READING
