What is it about?

The three main techniques to evaluate myocardial function and volumes: two-dimensional echocardiography (TTE), gated single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (cMRI), have important differences in accessibility and practicality

Why is it important?

There is a strong correlations between TTE, SPECT, and cMRI in the assessment of left ventricular function in patients with AMI or CIHF. However, TTE appears to significantly underestimate left ventricular volumes in relation to SPECT and cMRI

Perspectives

Multimodality imaging of left ventricular function and volumes in patients with acute and chronic myocardial injury shows high correlation of measurements.
