. CT-derived left ventricular global strain in aortic valve stenosis patients: A comparative analysis pre and post transcatheter aortic valve implantation. J Cardiovasc Comput Tomogr. 2018;12:240-244 pubmed publisher
..Using dedicated software, assessment of CT derived left ventricular strain is feasible. In patients treated with transcatheter aortic valve replacement, CT-derived parameters of global myocardial strain improve onshort-term follow-up. ..

. Epicardial adipose tissue density and volume are related to subclinical atherosclerosis, inflammation and major adverse cardiac events in asymptomatic subjects. J Cardiovasc Comput Tomogr. 2018;12:67-73 pubmed publisher
..Lower EAT density and increased EAT volume were associated with coronary calcification, serum levels of plaque inflammatory markers and MACE, suggesting that dysfunctional EAT may be linked to early plaque formation and inflammation. ..
