Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Stress cardiomyopathy is a unique reversible cardiac syndrome that is frequently precipitated by a physical or emotionally stressful event and has a clinical presentation that is indistinguishable from a myocardial infarction. We describe the case of a patient with apical sparing variant of stress cardiomyopathy in whom dual energy cardiac CT identified characteristic regional wall motion abnormality without concomitant coronary artery disease and myocardial perfusion defects.
