BACKGROUND The objective of this study was the quantification of myocardial motion from 3D tissue phase mapped (TPM) CMR. Recent work on myocardial motion quantification by TPM has been focussed on multi-slice 2D acquisitions thus excluding motion information from large regions of the left ventricle. Volumetric motion assessment appears an important next… (More)
In golden angle radial magnetic resonance imaging a constant azimuthal radial profile spacing of 111.246...(°) guarantees a nearly uniform azimuthal profile distribution in k-space for an arbitrary number of radial profiles. Even though this profile order is advantageous for various real-time imaging methods, in combination with balanced steady-state free… (More)
It is objective of this study to investigate the potential of velocity encoded MRI (TPM) to derive quantitative parameters based on local displacement information for the automatic assessment of mechanical asynchrony in CRT patients.
It is objective of this study to investigate the potential role of different automatically derived quantitative parameters derived from velocity encoded MRI for the identification of asynchronic patients.
