As part of the nutrition-countermeasures (NUC) study in Cologne, Germany in 2010, seven healthy male subjects underwent 21 days of head-down tilt bed rest and returned 153 days later to undergo a second bout of 21-day bed rest. As part of this model, we aimed to examine the recovery of the lumbar intervertebral discs and muscle cross-sectional area (CSA)(More)
Three-dimensional methods offer volumetric coverage in coronary vessel wall imaging, in addition to high signal-to-noise ratios (SNR). To increase SNR further, it is desirable to implement such 3D methods at 3 T. At this field strength, the pulse sequence must be robust to main field and RF inhomogeneities. To achieve this, the double inversion-recovery(More)
Introduction: The assessment of cardiac function requires the computation of left-ventricular (LV) and right-ventricular (RV) volumes, at least for the end-diastolic (ED) and end-systolic (ES) phases. This is typically done on the basis of short-axis (SA) cine acquisitions [1] by manually contouring in each slice the LV and RV endocardial and epicardial(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate a 3D model of the left ventricle (LV) which allows calculation of LV function parameters on the basis of both short axis (SA) and long axis (LA) cine acquisitions. Comparison with the conventional Simpson's rule method in a volunteer and patient collective. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cine imaging was performed with a prospectively triggered(More)
