Abstract

Valvular heart disease commonly affects patients evaluated in the cardiology practice. Although Echocardiography is the primary modality for the evaluation of patients with suspected or known valvular heart disease, cardiac CT has distinct advantage in the evaluation of several anatomical features of the cardiac valves, including the extent of calcification, the geometry of the annulus and the evaluation of biological and mechanical prostheses. It is important for cardiologists, radiologists and other cardiac imaging specialists to recognize the features of normal and abnormal valves in patients who are referred for cardiac CT evaluation.
