The purpose of this work was to develop high-resolution cardiac magnetic resonance imaging techniques for the in vivo mouse model for quantification of myocardial function and mass. Eight male mice were investigated on a 7-Tesla MRI scanner. High-quality images in multiple short axis slices (in-plane resolution 117 microm2, slice thickness 1 mm) were(More)
Cardiovascular transgenic mouse models with an early phenotype or even premature death require noninvasive imaging methods that allow for accurate visualization of cardiac morphology and function. Thus the purpose of our study was to assess the feasibility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to characterize cardiac function and mass in newborn, juvenile,(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the capability of MRI to characterize systolic and diastolic function in normal and chronically failing mouse hearts in vivo at rest and during inotropic stimulation. Applying an ECG-gated FLASH-cine sequence, MRI at 7 T was performed at rest and after administration of 1.5 microgram/g IP dobutamine. There was a(More)
The aim of this study was to test the feasibility of cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for assessment of the infarcted rat and mouse heart and to compare the results with established methods. These models have been proven to predict genesis and prevention of heart failure in patients. The value of cine MRI was tested in studies investigating(More)
The absolute perfusion and the intracapillary or regional blood volume (RBV) in murine myocardium were assessed in vivo by spin labeling magnetic resonance imaging. Pixel-based perfusion and RBV maps were calculated at a pixel resolution of 469 x 469 mum and a slice thickness of 2 mm. The T(1) imaging module was a segmented inversion recovery snapshot fast(More)
Many NMR measurements of cardiac microcirculation (perfusion, intramyocardial blood volume) depend on some kind of assumption of intracapillary-extravascular water exchange rate, e.g., fast exchange. The magnitude of this water exchange rate, however, is still unknown. The intention of this study was to determine a lower limit for this exchange rate by(More)
The inclusive single and double differential cross-sections for neutral and charged current processes with four-momentum transfer squared É ¾ between ½½¼ and ¿¼ ¼¼¼ Î ¾ and with Bjorken Ü between ¼¼¼¿¾ and ¼ are measured in · Ô collisions. The data were taken with the H1 detector at HERA between 1994 and 1997, and they correspond to an integrated luminosity(More)

Deep inelastic e p scattering data, taken with the H1 detector at HERA, are used to study the event shape variables thrust, jet broadening and jet mass in the current hemisphere of the Breit frame over a large range of momentum transfers Q between 7 GeV and 100 GeV. The data are compared with results from e + e − experiments. Using second order QCD(More)
Deep-inelastic ep scattering data taken with the H1 detector at HERA and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 106 pb −1 are used to study the differential distributions of event shape variables. These include thrust, jet broadening, jet mass and the C-parameter. The four-momentum transfer Q is taken to be the relevant energy scale and ranges between(More)
BACKGROUND Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is an inherited disorder that causes sudden death and right ventricular heart failure in the young. Clinical data suggest that competitive sports may provoke ARVC in susceptible persons. Genetically, loss-of-function mutations in desmosomal proteins (plakophilin, desmoplakin, or plakoglobin)(More)
