Evaluation of left ventricular ejection fraction using through-time radial GRAPPA
Background: The determination of left ventricular ejection fraction using cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) requires a steady cardiac rhythm for electrocardiogram (ECG) gating and multiple breathholds to minimize respiratory motion artifacts, which often leads to scan times of several minutes. The...

High-resolution 3-dimensional late gadolinium enhancement scar imaging in surgically corrected Tetralogy of Fallot: clinical feasibility of volumetric quantification and visualization
Background: The extent of surgical scarring in Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) may be a marker of adverse outcomes and provide substrate for ventricular arrhythmia. In this study we evaluate the feasibility of high resolution three dimensional (3D) late gadolinium enhancement...

Ex vivo cardiovascular magnetic resonance measurements of right and left ventricular mass compared with direct mass measurement in excised hearts after transplantation: a first human SSFP comparison
Background: CMR is considered the ‘gold standard’ for non-invasive LV and RV mass quantitation. This information is solely based on gradient-recalled echo (GRE) sequences while contrast dependent on intrinsic T1/T2 characteristics potentially offers superior image contrast between blood and myocardium....

Value of additional strain analysis with feature tracking in dobutamine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance for detecting coronary artery disease
Background: Dobutamine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance (DS-CMR) has been established for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD). The novel technique feature tracking (FT) analyses left ventricular circumferential strain (Ecc) thus offering detailed information about myocardial deformation. The purpose of...
