Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Effective for Diagnosing Left Atrial and LAA Thrombus

from The Cardiology Advisor

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance could serve as a single diagnostic tool to assess pulmonary venous anatomy and presence of left atrial and left atrial appendage (LA/LAA) thrombus, reducing the number of tests prior to pulmonary vein isolation (PVI), according to data published in JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging. Transesophageal echocardiogram is currently the standard method for detecting LA/LAA in patients with atrial fibrillation prior to PVI. more
