Recent advances in multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) have allowed an improved analysis of left atrial (LA) and left atrial appendage (LAA) anatomy prior to catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, data regarding the ability of MSCT to identify LA/LAA thrombus are limited. This prospective study compared the efficacy of 64-slice contrast-enhanced computed tomography (64CCT) with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) of the heart in the identification of LA/LAA thrombus.
