OBJECTIVE To evaluate prevalence and diagnostic accuracy of myocardial hypoenhancement (MH) using multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in patients admitted for acute chest pain syndromes. METHODS Sixty-nine patients underwent first-pass MDCT, coronary angiography, and echocardiography. Using a standardized analysis protocol, left ventricular short-axis reformations were evaluated for presence, size, and density of MH in 16 myocardial segments. These were correlated with the presence and… CONTINUE READING
