Figure 1 : 

Concordance between multislice computed tomography (MSCT) and transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in studies of the left ventricle, using scattergrams (left panels) and the Bland-Altman method (right panels). A: left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). B: left ventricular end-diastolic diameter (LVEDD). C: left ventricular end-diastolic volume (LVEDV). D: end-diastolic interventricular septal thickness (IVSTd). E: end-diastolic posterior wall thickness (PWTd). See text for details. S.D.: standard deviation.

Figure 2 : 

Representative example of left ventricular and coronary arteries analysis in a 48-year-old patient. A: three-dimensional volume-rendered representation of the left ventricle (3DRV) in diastole (Dia) and in systole (Sys). B: measurements of left ventricular end-diastolic diameter (74.3mm), end-diastolic interventricular septal thickness (8.9mm) and end-diastolic posterior wall thickness (8.2mm) in axes views, with apparent left ventricular noncompaction. C: 3DRV representation of the coronary arterial vessels and curvilinear multiplanar reconstruction (CMPR). C: compacted zone; CX: circumflex artery; EDV: end-diastolic volume; ESV: end-systolic volume; LAD: left anterior descending artery; LVEF: left ventricular ejection fraction; NC: noncompacted zone; RCA: right coronary artery.

Coronary venous anatomy of a 72-year-old patient. A: in the anteroposterior view. B: in the 45° left anterior oblique view. C: in the posterior view. D: in curvilinear multiplanar reconstruction (CMPR). ALV: anterolateral vein; AV: anterior vein; CSO: coronary sinus ostium; GCV: great cardiac vein; LV: lateral vein; MCV: middle cardiac vein; PLV: posterolateral vein.
