Both post-contrast myocardial T1 and extracellular volume (ECV) measurements have been associated with diffuse interstitial fibrosis. The cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) field is migrating towards ECV, because it is largely insensitive to confounders that affect post-contrast myocardial T1 . Despite the theoretical advantages of myocardial ECV over(More)
Both post-contrast myocardial T1 and extracellular volume (ECV) have been reported to be associated with diffuse interstitial fibrosis. Recently, the cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) field is recognizing that post-contrast myocardial T1 is sensitive to several confounders and migrating towards ECV as a measure of collagen volume fraction. Several(More)
We propose a vibrotactile pattern authoring method based on the user's demonstration, where a device generates a vibrotactile pattern by imitating the touch input pattern of the user. The usability of our demonstration-based method is also compared with the conventional waveform-based authoring. The results showed that our demonstration-based authoring(More)
Background Cardiac T1 and extracellular volume fraction (ECV), derived from preand post-contrast cardiac and blood T1 measurements, are emerging imaging biomarkers of diffuse cardiac fibrosis. The most frequently used cardiac T1 mapping pulse sequence is MOLLI [1]. However, MOLLI is known to be sensitive to rapid heart rate and irregular rhythm, because it(More)
Background Myocardial extracellular volume (ECV) fraction [1], derived from preand post-contrast cardiac T1 measurements, is an emerging biomarker of diffuse cardiac fibrosis. The major benefits of ECV over post-contrast cardiac T1 is that the former is less sensitive to confounders such as contrast agent type and dosage, specific delayed imaging time,(More)
Recently, haptics has begun to impact consumer products, e.g., mo­ bile phones and automobiles. In this paper, we introduce one such new application, that is, haptic simulation of refrigerator operation, and present an initial prototype for the front door. A one degree­ of-freedom haptic interface is designed and built to provide torque feedback of the(More)
PURPOSE To develop and evaluate a wideband arrhythmia-insensitive-rapid (AIR) pulse sequence for cardiac T1 mapping without image artifacts induced by implantable-cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD). METHODS We developed a wideband AIR pulse sequence by incorporating a saturation pulse with wide frequency bandwidth (8.9 kHz) to achieve uniform T1 weighting(More)
AIM Late gadolinium enhanced (LGE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a useful tool for facilitating ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation. Unfortunately, most VT ablation candidates often have prophylactic implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) and do not undergo cardiac MRI largely due to image artefacts generated by ICD. A prior study has reported(More)
