This paper presents results of the comprehensive study of 86 patients with chronic ischemic heart disease using cardiovascular imaging techniques. The precision and specificity of multidetector computer tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction were determined. Interrelation between depth of myocardial injury, global and regional left ventricular function was studied. Comparability of the results received by means of multidetector computed tomography and echocardiography or magnetic resonance imaging for evaluation of left ventricular remodeling was observed.
