Coronary artery aneurysms, stenoses, and thromboses are significant complications of Kawasaki disease (KD). While appearing in childhood, coronary complications are often left unrecognized until early and mid-adulthood. Along with the increasing capacity of noninvasive coronary artery imaging modalities, especially computed tomography and magnetic(More)
Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging plays an essential role in the evaluation and follow-up of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD), providing safe, high-resolution imaging of some of the most complex anatomies encountered. Unlimited by acoustic windows and capable of tissue characterization, CMR is devoid of ionizing radiation and provides(More)
A 29-year-old man presenting with syncopal ventricular tachycardia was diagnosed with arrhythmogenic right ventricular (RV) cardiomyopathy. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an unequivocal dyskinetic segment at the basal portion of the RV lateral free wall. Three-dimensional electroanatomic voltage mapping using the EnSite NavX system(More)
Atherosclerosis exacts a large toll on society in the form of cardiovascular morbidity, mortality, and resource use and is exacerbated by the epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Consequently, there is a critical need for more-effective methods of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the complications of atherosclerosis. Careful and well-conducted large(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of incidental deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in patients with clinically suspected peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) using contrast-enhanced MR angiography (MRA) with a blood pool contrast agent. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Two hundred fifty-nine MRA examinations with blood pool(More)
This article reviews the most common gynecologic malignancies and their MR imaging features. The overall goal remains early disease detection and accurate staging to optimize treatment and thereby to reduce morbidity and mortality. MR imaging, when available, may play an important role in the accurate staging and evaluation of female pelvic malignancies(More)
