Clinical, imaging, and pathological characteristics of left ventricular thrombus: a comparison of contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, transthoracic echocardiography, and transesophageal
BACKGROUND Left ventricular (LV) thrombus is a frequent and potentially dangerous complication of ischemic heart disease (IHD). We evaluated the clinical, imaging, and pathology characteristics ofExpand

Mechanisms of Myocardial Infarction in Women Without Angiographically Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease
Background— There is no angiographically demonstrable obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) in a significant minority of patients with myocardial infarction, particularly women. We sought toExpand

Highly accelerated real‐time cardiac cine MRI using k–t SPARSE‐SENSE
For patients with impaired breath‐hold capacity and/or arrhythmias, real‐time cine MRI may be more clinically useful than breath‐hold cine MRI. However, commercially available real‐time cine MRIExpand

Nonstress delayed-enhancement magnetic resonance imaging of the myocardium predicts improvement of function after revascularization for chronic ischemic heart disease with left ventricular
BACKGROUND The extent of myocardial scarring of the left ventricle (LV) is important in patients with chronic ischemic heart disease (CIHD). With delayed-enhancement magnetic resonance imagingExpand
