UNLABELLED Precise and reliable assessment of left ventricular (LV) function and dimensions is prognostically important in cardiac patients. As the integration of SPECT and multislice CT into hybrid scanners will promote the combined use of both techniques in the same patient, a comparison of the 2 methods is pertinent. We aimed at comparing LV dimensions, muscle mass, and function obtained by electrocardiographically gated 64-slice CT versus gated-SPECT. METHODS Sixty patients (mean age, 64… CONTINUE READING
