Using receiver operating characteristic analysis, Purpose This study quantified the contraction synchronicity values for the area under the curve showing the performance (CS; with 100% representing full synchrony and −100% of CA, CS, CWand LVEF in the diagnosis of CAD were 0.81, dyssynchrony) and contraction work (CW, millijoules per cen- 0.86, 0.78, and 0.84, respectively. timeter squared; representing myocardial area) in patients with Conclusion Asynchrony shown using the QSFP is useful for reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) associated CAD detection. with coronary artery disease (CAD).
