Left ventricular area on non-contrast cardiac computed tomography as a predictor of incident heart failure – The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis
Computed Tomography Angiography
Coronary Artery Disease
Hypertrophy, Left Ventricular
In an ethnically diverse population of asymptomatic individuals free from baseline CVD or HF, the left ventricular area measured by non-contrast cardiac CT is a strong predictor of incident HF events beyond traditional risk factors and CAC score.
