AIMS We evaluated the accuracy of 64-slice computed tomography (CT) to identify ischaemic aetiology of heart failure (IHF). METHODS AND RESULTS Ninety-three consecutive patients in sinus rhythm with dilated cardiomyopathy but without suspicion of coronary artery disease (CAD) were enrolled when admitted for angiography. Accuracy of CT to detect significant stenosis (>50% lumen narrowing) was compared with quantitative coronary angiography. IHF was defined as a significant stenosis on left… CONTINUE READING
