Thirty-two consecutive patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DC), 19 with ischemic and 13 with nonischemic DC, underwent coronary angiography and double helix computed tomography to detect coronary calcium. The presence of calcium can detect ischemic DC with an accuracy of 97% and furnish a reliable noninvasive sign for the differentiation between ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathy.
