Is multidetector computed tomography a suitable alternative to MR imaging for the assessment of myocardial necrosis after alcohol septal ablation?

Abstract

BACKGROUND To compare magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for the assessment of myocardial infarction (MI) after alcohol septal ablation (ASA). METHODS Ten patients (mean age, 60 years ± 16) were examined with both MDCT and 1.5-T MR imaging performed 10 minutes after injection, within 3 days after ASA. Half of them… (More)
