PURPOSE To evaluate a standardized definition of delayed hyperenhancement in the analysis of contrast-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance (ceCMR) imaging. PATIENTS AND METHODS CeCMR was performed in 15 patients with chronic ischemic heart disease. Delayed hyperenhancement was analyzed both by visual analysis by an experienced team of observers, and after(More)
BACKGROUND Alcohol septal ablation (ASA) reduces left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) pressure gradient in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM), which leads to left ventricular remodeling. We sought to describe the early to midterm changes and modulating factors of the remodeling process using cardiac MRI (CMR). METHODS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Quantification of late gadolinium enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance (LGE CMR) by objective window setting increases reproducibility and facilitates multicenter comparison and cooperation. So far, quantification methods or models have only been validated to postmortem animal studies. This study was undertaken to evaluate quantification of(More)
The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) in Australia consists of 3200 coral reefs extended over 280,000 km 2. Coral reef ecosystems are areas greatly susceptible to impact of global climate change as well as other man-made influences. This creates an urgent demand for the sensor network technologies to be deployed in order to perform essential environmental monitoring(More)
AIMS We sought to evaluate the relation between long-term functional outcome after revascularization in patients with chronic ischaemic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and baseline extent of myocardial fibrosis. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty-five patients underwent cine and delayed contrast-enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance (deCMR) for the(More)
The commonly recommended one-dimensional (ID) and two-dimensional (2D) algorithms for left ventricular (LV) mass calculation are limited by assumptions about ventricular geometry and image plane position. To assess the accuracy of these algorithms after eliminating errors associated with image plane position, LV mass was calculated from high quality(More)
In patients with chronic ischemic myocardial dysfunction, late gadolinium enhancement CMR (LGE-CMR) accurately depicts the regional extent of fibrosis and predicts functional recovery after revascularization. We hypothesized that the predictive accuracy of LGE-CMR could be optimized by not only taking into account the transmural extent of hyperenhancement(More)
In patients with chronic ischaemic left ventricular dysfunction, revascularization may lead to symptomatic and prognostic improvement. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging with its high spatial resolution provides the qualitative and quantitative, global and regional information on myocardial anatomy and function. In combination with a(More)
This demo dramatically illustrates how replacing 'Classic' TCP congestion control (Reno, Cubic, etc.) with a 'Scalable' alternative like Data Centre TCP (DCTCP) keeps queuing delay ultra-low; not just for a select few light applications like voice or gaming, but even when a variety of interactive applications all heavily load the same (emulated) Internet(More)
Background: In cardiac syndrome X, which is a syndrome defined as chest pain, positive exercise stress testing and/or reversible myocardial perfusion defects during myocardial scintigraphy and normal coronary angiograms, the ischemic origin is still debated. No previous study compared the myocardial perfusion in stress first-pass cardiac magnetic resonance(More)
