Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) is a myocardial disorder characterized by prominent trabeculations and deep intertrabecular recesses within the left ventricular wall. Multi-slice computed tomography (CT) might represent a valid non-invasive imaging technique for the diagnostic work-up of these patients, being able to visualize the compacted and non-compacted layers and to simultaneously rule out the presence of associated coronary artery disease and congenital heart disease. In the present report, the CT features of LVNC are described.
