BACKGROUND Early detection of diastolic dysfunction is crucial for patients with incipient heart failure. Although this evaluation could be performed from phase-contrast (PC) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) data, its usefulness in clinical routine is not yet established, mainly because the interpretation of such data remains mostly based on manual(More)
Early detection of diastolic dysfunction is crucial for patients with incipient heart failure. Our goal was to develop a robust process to automatically estimate diastolic parameters from phase-contrast cardiovascular magnetic resonance (PC-CMR) data and to test their ability to characterize left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. We studied 53 subjects (35(More)
Although few studies demonstrated the ability of MRI dynamic anatomical sequences to assess right ventricular (RV) diastolic function, no data are available for velocity-encoded MRI (VE-MRI). Accordingly, our aim was to evaluate RV diastolic function from VE-MRI, as compared to reference Doppler echocardiography. We studied 109 healthy individuals (67 men,(More)
