OBJECTIVES We studied the impact of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)/DD genotype on morphologic and functional cardiac changes in adult endurance athletes. BACKGROUND Trained athletes usually develop adaptive left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), and ACE gene polymorphisms may regulate myocardial growth. However, little is known about the impact of(More)
The normal cardiac cycle consists of two phases, systole and diastole, which are repeated over time to maintain an adequate cardiac output.

Dobutamine Stress Echo is considered one of the methods of choice in the detection of coronary artery disease in this subgroup of patients. OBJECTIVES . Our aim was to analyze if(More)
Tractography of cerebral white matter fibers based on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is a recent magnetic resonance technique that enables the visualization of the anatomy and integrity of white matter tracts. This article aims to provide two- and three-dimensional representations of the main white matter tracts in the brain from high spatial resolution DTI(More)
