Objective To assess the utility of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in acute cardiac rejection using T2 mapping.
STUDY DESIGN This research utilized a cross-sectional design. OBJECTIVES Spinal cord edema length has been measured with T2-weighted sagittal MRI to predict motor recovery following spinal cord injury. The purpose of our study was to establish the correlational value of axial spinal cord edema using T2-weighted MRI. We hypothesized a direct relationship… (More)
Muscle fat infiltration (MFI) is an expected consequence of incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI). The MFI magnitude may have clinical value in determining functional recovery. However, there is a lack of understanding of how MFI relates to the volitional muscle activity in people with motor incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI). Five iSCI and 5 uninjured… (More)
Objective To evaluate the potential clinical utility of T2 quantitative mapping for myocardial edema in acute disease pathology-myocarditis, myocardial infarction, Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy, and transplant rejection.
