BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to validate the accuracy of three-dimensional (3D) speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) and two-dimensional (2D)-STE for the assessment of left atrial (LA) volume and function by comparison with 3D-computed tomography (CT) performed on the same day as STE. METHODS LA phasic volume and emptying function (EF) were measured in 28 patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation undergoing catheter ablation (62±11 years old) using both 3D-STE and 2D-STE during… CONTINUE READING
