BACKGROUND Quantification of myocardial perfusion from first-pass cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) images at high contrast agent (CA) dose requires separate acquisition of blood pool and myocardial tissue enhancement. In this study, a dual-sequence approach interleaving 2D imaging of the arterial input function with high-resolution 3D imaging for(More)
Increased aortic stiffness is known to be associated with atherosclerosis and has a predictive value for cardiovascular events. This study aims to investigate the local distribution of early arterial stiffening due to initial atherosclerotic lesions. Therefore, global and local pulse wave velocity (PWV) were measured in ApoE-/- and wild type (WT) mice using(More)
BACKGROUND Whole-heart first-pass perfusion cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) relies on highly accelerated image acquisition. The influence of undersampling on myocardial blood flow (MBF) quantification has not been systematically investigated yet. In the present work, the effect of spatiotemporal scan acceleration on image reconstruction accuracy and(More)
