PURPOSE To evaluate efficacy and reproducibility of 320-slice computed tomography (CT) for measuring left atrial (LA) maximum (LAVmax) and minimum volume (LAVmin) during the cardiac cycle, we compared CT with three- and two-dimensional (3D and 2D) transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE). MATERIALS AND METHODS LAVmax and LAVmin (ml), and LA ejection fraction (LAEF) (%) were assessed in 22 consecutive subjects (15 males, 59.5 ± 15.1 years) using retrospective electrocardiogram gated 320-slice CT… CONTINUE READING
