Computerized tomography (CT) plays a pivotal role in selection of patients’, appropriate device size and pre-procedural guidance in successful outcome of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). CT based vascular and non-vascular evaluation and integration of relevant measurements into TAVI work up has been shown to reduce morbidity and mortality. Post-procedural device assessment and complications could also be reliably evaluated with CT. Utilization of CT is not just confined to TAVI but it is also increasingly being used for any transcatheter valvular assessment.
