Comparison was made between contrast enhanced cine computed tomography (Cine/CT) and echocardiography in the imaging of the mitral valve in 14 patients. The mitral valve was seen in all 14 patients by Cine/CT using a new long axis view. There was agreement with echocardiography in 12 patients. Abnormalities in mitral valve movement were detected by Cine/CT. Left atrial size and contraction was measured by Cine/CT with a difference in left atrial ejection fraction observed between 13 patients with no evidence of mitral disease and 3 patients with mitral disease.

    Background: Mitral valve calcification is often incidentally detected on chest computed tomography (CT) scans obtained for a variety of noncardiac indications. In this study, we evaluated the association between mitral valve calcification incidentally detected on chest CT and the presence and...

    This case report describes the successful repair of an acute dissection of the ascending aorta in a 16-year-old girl. The dissection appeared to be related to the presence of an aortic coarctation. Furthermore, a bicuspid aortic valve was found. Echocardiography was helpful for quick...

    The leaflets of the mitral valve interact with the mitral jet and significantly impact diastolic flow patterns, but the effect of mitral valve morphology and kinematics on diastolic flow and its implications for left ventricular function have not been clearly delineated. In the present study, we...
