BACKGROUND: Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), end-diastolic volume (EDV) and end-systolic volume (ESV) can be determined non-invasively by two-dimensional echocardiography (ECHO), gated single photon emission computed tomography (GSPECT) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI). This study was designed to analyze the concordance between LVEF, EDV and ESV values derived from ECHO, GSPECT and CMRI.
