We conducted a parallel-group, double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial. Patients(More)
PURPOSE To scan a volunteer population using 3.0T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI of the left ventricular (LV) structure and function in healthy volunteers has been reported extensively at 1.5T. MATERIALS AND METHODS A population of 1528 volunteers was scanned. A standardized approach was taken to acquire steady-state free precession (SSFP) LV data(More)
