UNLABELLED The present study aimed to distinguish responders to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) from nonresponders, using electrocardiogram-gated 18F-FDG PET/CT. METHODS Seven consecutive CRT nonresponders were included in the study, along with 7 age- and sex-matched CRT responders, serving as reference material. Therapy response was defined as clinical improvement (≥1 New York Heart Association class) and evidence of reverse remodeling. Besides PET/CT, we measured brain natriuretic… CONTINUE READING
