Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of morbidity in smokers, and as much as 50% of the estimated 24 million patients in the United States with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) die of cardiovascular causes (1,2). Although echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are often used to study cardiac structure and function in COPD (3), these are not routinely deployed in all smokers. Computed tomographic (CT) imaging of the chest is broadly used in clinical care and is increasingly used for lung cancer screening in high-risk smokers (4). Assessment of cardiac structure on those CT scans may help identify patients with COPD at greater risk of developing cardiac dysfunction. Rapid, noninvasive assessments of cardiac morphology and a better understanding of the functional interdependence of heart and lung may improve healthcare outcomes through early detection and initiation of treatment.
