PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the measurements of the aortic root obtained from electrocardiographically (ECG)-gated computed tomography (CT) angiography (CTA) to the measurements obtained from transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective study in a patient population scanned at our institution between December 2005 and January 2007 with retrospectively ECG-gated CTA. ECG-gated CTA was performed with a 64-section helical CT scanner… CONTINUE READING
