    Diagnostic Performance of a Machine Learning-Based CT-Derived FFR in Detecting Flow-Limiting Stenosis
    (2021) MORAIS, Thamara Carvalho; ASSUNCAO-JR, Antonildes Nascimento; DANTAS JUNIOR, Roberto Nery; SILVA, Carla Franco Grego da; PAULA, Caroline Bastida de; TORRES, Roberto Almeida; MAGALHAES, Tiago Augusto; NOMURA, Cesar Higa; AVILA, Luiz Francisco Rodrigues de; PARGA FILHO, Jose Rodrigues
    Background: The non-invasive quantification of the fractional flow reserve (FFRCT) using a more recent version of an artificial intelligence-based software and latest generation CT scanner (384 slices) may show high performance to detect coronary ischemia. Objectives: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of FFRCT for the detection of significant coronary artery disease (CAD) in contrast to invasive FFR (iFFR) using previous generation CT scanners (128 and 256-detector rows). Methods: Retrospective study with patients referred to coronary artery CT angiography (CTA) and catheterization (iFFR) procedures. Siemens Somatom Definition Flash (256-detector rows) and AS+ (128-detector rows) CT scanners were used to acquire the images. The FFRCT and the minimal lumen area (MLA) were evaluated using a dedicated software (cFFR version 3.0.0, Siemens Healthineers, Forchheim, Germany). Obstructive CAD was defined as CTA lumen reduction >= 50%, and flow-limiting stenosis as iFFR <= 0.8. All reported P values are two-tailed, and when <0.05, they were considered statistically significant. Results: Ninety-three consecutive patients (152 vessels) were included. There was good agreement between FFRCT and iFFR, with minimal FFRCT overestimation (bias: -0.02; limits of agreement:0.14-0.09). Different CT scanners did not modify the association between FFRCT and FFRi (p for interaction=0.73). The performance of FFRCT was significantly superior compared to the visual classification of coronary stenosis (AUC 0.93vs.0.61, p<0.001) and to MLA (AUC 0.93vs.0.75, p<0.001), reducing the number of false-positive cases. The optimal cut-off point for FFRCT using a Youden index was 0.85 (87% Sensitivity, 86% Specificity, 73% PPV, 94% NPV), with a reduction of false-positives. Conclusion: Machine learning-based FFRCT using previous generation CT scanners (128 and 256-detector rows) shows good diagnostic performance for the detection of CAD, and can be used to reduce the number of invasive procedures.

    Detection of Early Diffuse Myocardial Fibrosis and Inflammation in Chagas Cardiomyopathy with T1 Mapping and Extracellular Volume
    (2023) MELO, Rodrigo J. L.; ASSUNCAO, Antonildes N.; MORAIS, Thamara C.; NOMURA, Cesar H.; SCANAVACCA, Mauricio I.; MARTINELLI-FILHO, Martino; RAMIRES, Felix J. A.; FERNANDES, Fabio; IANNI, Barbara M.; MADY, Charles; ROCHITTE, Carlos E.
    Purpose: To evaluate myocardial T1 mapping and extracellular volume (ECV) parameters in different stages of Chagas cardiomyopathy and determine whether they are predictive of disease severity and prognosis.Materials and Methods: Prospectively enrolled participants (July 2013 to September 2016) underwent cine and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiac MRI and T1 mapping with a precontrast (native) or postcontrast modified Look-Locker sequence. The native T1 and ECV values were measured among subgroups that were based on disease severity (indeterminate, Chagas cardiomyopathy with preserved ejection fraction [CCpEF], Chagas cardiomyopathy with midrange ejection fraction [CCmrEF], and Chagas cardiomyopathy with reduced ejection fraction [CCrEF]). Cox proportional hazards regression and the Akaike information criterion were used to determine predictors of major cardiovascular events (cardioverter defibrillator implant, heart transplant, or death).Results: In 107 participants (90 participants with Chagas disease [mean age & PLUSMN; SD, 55 years & PLUSMN; 11; 49 men] and 17 age-and sex matched control participants), the left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction and the extent of focal and diffuse or interstitial fibrosis were correlated with disease severity. Participants with CCmrEF and participants with CCrEF showed significantly higher global native T1 and ECV values than participants in the indeterminate, CCpEF, and control groups (T1: 1072 msec & PLUSMN; 34 and 1073 msec & PLUSMN; 63 vs 1010 msec & PLUSMN; 41, 1005 msec & PLUSMN; 69, and 999 msec & PLUSMN; 46; ECV: 35.5% & PLUSMN; 3.6 and 35.0% & PLUSMN; 5.4 vs 25.3% & PLUSMN; 3.5, 28.2% & PLUSMN; 4.9, and 25.2% & PLUSMN; 2.2; both P < .001). Remote (LGE-negative areas) native T1 and ECV values were also higher (T1: 1056 msec & PLUSMN; 32 and 1071 msec & PLUSMN; 55 vs 1008 msec & PLUSMN; 41, 989 msec & PLUSMN; 96, and 999 msec & PLUSMN; 46; ECV: 30.2% & PLUSMN; 4.7 and 30.8% & PLUSMN; 7.4 vs 25.1% & PLUSMN; 3.5, 25.1% & PLUSMN; 3.7, and 25.0% & PLUSMN; 2.2; both P < .001). Abnormal remote ECV values (>30%) occurred in 12% of participants in the indeterminate group, which increased with disease severity. Nineteen combined outcomes were observed (median follow-up time: 43 months), and a remote native T1 value greater than 1100 msec was independently predictive of combined outcomes (hazard ratio, 12 [95% CI: 4.1, 34.2]; P < .001).Conclusion: Myocardial native T1 and ECV values were correlated with Chagas disease severity and may serve as markers of myocardial involvement in Chagas cardiomyopathy that precede LGE and LV dysfunction.

    Dipyridamole stress myocardial perfusion by computed tomography in patients with left bundle branch block
    (2015) CABEDA, Estevan Vieira; FALCAO, Andrea Maria Gomes; SOARES JR., Jose; ROCHITTE, Carlos Eduardo; NOMURA, Cesar Higa; AVILA, Luiz Francisco Rodrigues; PARGA, Jose Rodrigues
    Background: Functional tests have limited accuracy for identifying myocardial ischemia in patients with left bundle branch block (LBBB). Objective: To assess the diagnostic accuracy of dipyridamole-stress myocardial computed tomography perfusion (CTP) by 320-detector CT in patients with LBBB using invasive quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) (stenosis >= 70%) as reference; to investigate the advantage of adding CTP to coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) and compare the results with those of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion scintigraphy. Methods: Thirty patients with LBBB who had undergone SPECT for the investigation of coronary artery disease were referred for stress tomography. Independent examiners performed per-patient and per-coronary territory assessments. All patients gave written informed consent to participate in the study that was approved by the institution's ethics committee. Results: The patients' mean age was 62 +/- 10 years. The mean dose of radiation for the tomography protocol was 9.3 +/- 4.6 mSv. With regard to CTP, the per-patient values for sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values, and accuracy were 86%, 81%, 80%, 87%, and 83%, respectively (p = 0.001). The per-territory values were 63%, 86%, 65%, 84%, and 79%, respectively (p < 0.001). In both analyses, the addition of CTP to CTA achieved higher diagnostic accuracy for detecting myocardial ischemia than SPECT (p < 0.001). Conclusion: The use of the stress tomography protocol is feasible and has good diagnostic accuracy for assessing myocardial ischemia in patients with LBBB.
