Titel:
Assessment of the aortic annulus by multislice computed tomography, contrast aortography, and trans-thoracic echocardiography in patients referred for transcatheter aortic valve implantation. 
Abstract:
We sought to determine the level of agreement and the reproducibility of trans-thoracic echocardiography (TTE), contrast aortography (CA) and multislice computed tomography (MSCT) for the assessment of the aortic annulus, in patients referred for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI).Correct measurement of the aortic annulus is important for TAVI.The dimensions of the aortic annulus were measured using TTE, CA and MSCT in 70 patients with severe aortic stenosis, referred for TAVI.
