Multidetector CT (MDCT) with 64-slice capability continues to gain momentum for cardiovascular imaging. Beyond images of coronary arteries, it also provides reliable information on left ventricular structure and function, cardiac venous anatomy, the pulmonary venous system, and right ventricular function-all aspects important in the management of heart failure patients. Potential unique applications in heart failure include cardiac dyssynchrony evaluation, assessing cardiomyopathies, and post-transplant annual follow-up. This review details the multiple applications and limitations of MDCT in the heart failure population, including comparison with other commonly used imaging modalities such as echocardiography and MRI.
