BACKGROUND Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) can sometimes be diagnosed very early in newborns and thus be corrected surgically before any myocardial ischaemia occurs. AIM To evaluate the influence of this very early surgery on intensive care management and long-term outcome. METHODS All children operated on(More)
Reproducibility of the manual assessment of right ventricle volumes by short-axis cine-MRI remains low and is often attributed to the difficulty in separating the right atrium from the ventricle. This study was designed to evaluate the regional interobserver variability of the right ventricle volume assessment to identify segmentation zones with the highest(More)
Subcutaneous fat necrosis is a classic, albeit uncommon, cause of neonatal hypercalcemia. It occurs in newborn infants within the first month of life following a complicated delivery. The diagnosis is usually easy because of the presence of red-purple plaques in fatty areas along with firm subcutaneous nodules. A 1-month-old neonate, born strangled by her(More)
AIMS To examine in a population of post-operative tetralogy of Fallot patients, the correlation between right ventricle (RV) ejection fractions (EF) computed from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and three echocardiographic indices of RV function: TAPSE, longitudinal strain and strain rate. Indeed, these patients present a pulmonary regurgitation which is(More)
This study was designed retrospectively to assess the value of myocardial T2 to detect or predict ongoing acute heart rejection, in heart transplant patients, with a 1.5-T MRI magnet. One hundred and ninety-six myocardial T2 quantifications were performed on sixty consecutive heart transplant patients during routine follow-up. T2 values were assessed (i)(More)
GOAL A novel magnetic resonance (MR) compatible accelerometer for respiratory motion sensing (MARMOT) is developed as a surrogate of the vendors' pneumatic belts. We aim to model and correct respiratory motion for free-breathing thoracic-abdominal MR imaging and to simplify patient installation. METHODS MR compatibility of MARMOT sensors was assessed in(More)
INTRODUCTION Patients with heart transplant are screened for silent graft rejection by recurrent endomyocardial biopsies. MRI can detect the presence of oedema non-invasively by quantitatively measuring changes of the transverse relaxation time T2 in the myocardium. Several monocentric studies have shown that T2 quantification could help detect graft(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the use of a nonrigid registration technique for detecting acute heart transplant rejection by MRI T2 quantification. METHODS Myocardial T2 quantification was achieved in 279 consecutive examinations from 78 different patients. The protocol consisted of 10 successive black-blood fast spin echo sequences with varying echo times, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Since 1998, French multidisciplinary prenatal diagnosis centers (CPDPN) offer a training opportunity to first-level screening sonographers. This study measures the impact of this training on prenatal detection rates of congenital heart diseases (CHDs). METHODS We analyzed the sensitivity of screening sonographers by comparing CHD prenatal(More)
To validate a new index, the surface–length index (SLI) based on area change in a short-axis view and length reduction in the horizontal long-axis view, which is used to quickly (<1 min) detect right ventricles with an abnormal ejection fraction (EF) during a cardiac MRI examination. SLI can be used to avoid a complete delineation of the endocardial(More)
