OBJECTIVE We aimed to compare velocity-encoded cine cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) with an established echocardiographic method for noninvasive measurement of aortic valve area (AVA) using the continuity equation. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty consecutive young adults with stenotic bicuspid aortic valves were examined with CMR and transthoracic(More)
PURPOSE In clinical practice, both coronary anatomy and myocardial perfusion information are needed to assess coronary artery disease (CAD). The extent and severity of coronary stenoses can be determined using computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA); the presence and amount of ischemia can be identified using myocardial perfusion imaging, such as(More)
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is a new robust versatile non-invasive imaging technique that can detect global and regional myocardial dysfunction, presence of myocardial ischaemia and myocardial scar tissue in one imaging session without radiation, with superb spatial and temporal resolution, inherited three-dimensional data collection and with(More)
First-pass cardiac MR perfusion (CMRP) imaging allows identification of hypo-perfused areas in the myocardium and therefore helps in early detection of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, its efficacy is often limited by respiratory motion artifacts, especially in stress-induced sequences. These distortions lead to unreliable estimates of perfusion(More)
