CT report that includes all data boosts benefits

Evaluation of global and regional LV wall motion, valvular function, myocardial mass, and, in some cases, right ventricular function produces valuable ancillary pieces of clinical information that can be obtained from a contrast-enhanced multislice CT scan.
