To perform a head-to-head comparison between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and gated single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for the evaluation of left ventricular (LV) function (LV ejection fraction [LVEF], LV volumes, and regional wall motion) in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy, we studied 22 patients with chronic coronary artery disease and LV dysfunction. Multislice, multiphase echoplanar MRI was performed with Philips Gyroscan ACS-NT15. Image analysis was performed… CONTINUE READING
