Recent Developments in Heart Failure Imaging Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Despite the central role of echocardiography in its primary assessment, heart failure is a condition in which access to multiple cardiovascular imaging modalities is important. A number of important observations relative to this topic have been made in the last year, including the assessment of left ventricular synchrony, myocardial mechanics, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, metabolic imaging, assessment of myocardial viability, and fusion imaging.
