A method to automatically plan acquisition of magnetic resonance images aligned with the cardiac axes is presented. Localiser images are acquired with a mean short axis orientation calculated from a group of (n=50) adult patients. These images are segmented using the expectation maximization algorithm. The borders of the ventricular blood pools are found(More)
Effective LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) reduction improves vascular function and can bring about regression of atherosclerosis. Alterations in endothelial function can occur rapidly, but changes in atherosclerosis are generally considered to occur more slowly. Vascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful technique for accurate non-invasive assessment(More)
