Abstract

To evaluate whether non-gated computed tomography (CT) can assess left ventricular (LV) function, 101 patients with both CT and echocardiography were selected, with ejection fraction <. 50% on echocardiography used as a reference standard. CTs were blindly reevaluated, and qualitative assessment of LV dysfunction on CT correlated with echocardiographic dysfunction, odds ratio of 21.0 (95% confidence interval=6.55-71.0), specificity of 86% (56/65). Systolic and diastolic images were identified on CT, and the ratio of systolic to diastolic LV internal diameters and ratio of LV to RV internal diameter were determined, both showing correlation with LV dysfunction on echocardiography (P<. .0001). Non-gated CT can be used to predict LV dysfunction.
