T1 mapping in cardiac MRI

Quantitative myocardial and blood T1 have recently achieved clinical utility in numerous pathologies, as they provide non-invasive tissue characterization with the potential to replace invasive biopsy. Native T1 time (no contrast agent), changes with myocardial extracellular water (edema, focal or diffuse fibrosis), fat, iron, and amyloid protein content. After contrast, the ...

Strain imaging using cardiac magnetic resonance

The objective assessments of left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) ejection fractions (EFs) are the main important tasks of routine cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). Over the years, CMR has emerged as the reference standard for the evaluation of biventricular morphology and function. However, changes in EF may occur in the late stages of the majority of cardiac ...
