DIAGNOSTIC PERFORMANCE OF INCREASED CARDIOTHORACIC RATIO ON CHEST RADIOGRAPHS TO DETECT LEFT VENTRICULAR DILATION USING ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY AS THE REFERENCE STANDARD: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS

Background: An increased cardiothoracic ratio (CTR) on chest radiographs (CXR) is considered equivalent to cardiomegaly. However, its diagnostic value to identify left ventricular (LV) dilation is unclear.Methods: We reviewed and included the diagnostic studies that [...]
