Abstract

Radiographic, ultrasound, nuclear, and magnetic resonance methods have become indispensable in the management of heart failure (HF). Imaging is widely used in decision making in HF, not only in relation to left ventricular (LV) systolic and diastolic function but also in the selection of medical, device, and surgical therapy in HF and valvular heart disease. Future developments in the care of advanced heart disease, including stem cell therapy, device therapy to control remodeling, and percutaneous valve interventions, as well as the need to identify subclinical heart disease, are likely to expand this use. Moreover, the epidemic of diabesity (diabetes and obesity) will augment the existing epidemic of HF just when it appeared to have peaked.1 Large numbers of patients will need information from imaging to guide clinical decision making (Table 1). The sources of this information will need to be expeditious, inexpensive, and preferably objective and quantitative.
