Abstract

Delayed contrast enhanced (DE) cardiac MR imaging (cMRI) has become the gold standard for the in vivo detection and quantification of myocardial infarcts (MI). Up to now, cMRI had to be performed in a closed bore environment due to technical constraints of the existing open low-field MR scanners.

Abstract

Interest in left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) as a distinct clinical form of cardiomyopathy is supported by recent publications. Echocardiographic and select cardiac MRI criteria have been established which are used to facilitate the diagnosis and have led to concerns of diagnostic accuracy.

Abstract

Vascular screening including the coronary, carotid, renal arteries and aorta using non-contrast MRA in 300 asymptomatic subjects detected atherosclerosis lesions including the coronary artery in 5% of participants.

Atherosclerosis is a systemic disease affecting arteries in a whole body and

Abstract

Myocardial oedema, myocardial salvage and myocardial salvage index, have been described as markers of prognosis and surrogate markers for clinical trials. The time-course of oedema following revascularised MI has been described in the first 6 months following PPCI but there is wide disagreement o

Abstract

The variability of pulse wave velocity (PWV) with changing arterial wall stress may reflect the degree of aortic stiffness independent of arterial pressure. We implemented a real-time MR flow technique so as to be able to assess acute changes in PWV due to affected arterial blood and/or intra tho

Abstract

The objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that quantitative measures of myocardial fibrosis such as the myocardial extravascular extracellular volume fraction (Ve) are associated with markers of adverse cardiac remodeling such as the left atrial volume index (LAVi) and left ventricula

Abstract

The study describes cardiovascular changes in patients with acromegaly before and one year after treatment.

Acromegaly causes a distinct cardiomyopathy, which remains poorly understood, because cardiac changes typically appear before the development of hypertension or diabetes.

Abstract

Manual segmentation of CMR images is inefficient and inconsistent method for measuring ventricular volumes. In this study, a new technique (ACOISIT) is developed and implemented for measuring ventricular volumes. The technique is based on automatic delineation of blood-myocardium border using ant
