BACKGROUND Cardiac dilatation is a predictor of poor outcome in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. Whereas cardiac chamber dimensions or volumes can be assessed by various noninvasive and invasive techniques, simple chest radiography also may provide a valuable assessment of cardiac size. METHODS AND RESULTS To determine the relative power of radiographic heart measurements for predicting outcome in dilated cardiomyopathy, we retrospectively studied 88 adult patients with chest radiographs… CONTINUE READING
