The dataset obtained with 64-slice multidetector CT (MDCT) for coronary artery evaluation can be used to calculate important left ventricular (LV) volumetric parameters. We compared LV parameters derived by new, commercially available, fully automated software for MDCT (Syngo Circulation, Siemens, Germany) to cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) as a reference standard. Twenty patients underwent CMR after completing a clinically indicated MDCT. Ejection fraction (EF), end-systolic volume (ESV), end… CONTINUE READING
