Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), a reference examination for cardiac morphology and function in humans, allows to image the cardiac right ventricle (RV) with high spatial resolution. The segmentation of the RV is a difficult task due to the variable shape of the RV and its ill-defined borders in these images. The aim of this paper is to evaluate several RV(More)
PURPOSE Segmenting the cardiac ventricles in magnetic resonance (MR) images is required for cardiac function assessment. Numerous segmentation methods have been developed and applied to MR ventriculography. Quantitative validation of these segmentation methods with ground truth is needed prior to clinical use, but requires manual delineation of hundreds of(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the influence of iodine concentration on diagnostic efficacy in multi-detector-row computed tomography (MDCT) angiography of the abdominal aorta and abdominal arteries. METHODS IRB approval and informed consent were obtained. In this double-blind trial, patients were randomised to undergo MDCT angiography of(More)
OBJECTIVES To demonstrate non-inferiority of iobitridol 350 for coronary CT angiography (CTA) compared to higher iodine content contrast media regarding rate of patients evaluable for the presence of coronary artery stenoses. METHODS In this multicentre trial, 452 patients were randomized to receive iobitridol 350, iopromide 370 or iomeprol 400 and(More)
