Respiratory motion during acquisition of first-pass myocardial perfusion images results in translation, distortion from out-of-plane motion, and changes in left ventricular geometry. Together these effects make visual image analysis more difficult and limit methods of quantitative analysis of contrast kinetics. We present a fully automated registration and(More)
A high resolution, noninvasive approach to quantify atherosclerotic plaque in the peripheral vasculature could have significant clinical and research utility. Seventeen patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) were studied in a 1.5T CMR scanner. Atherosclerotic plaque volume in the superficial femoral artery was measured and interobserver,(More)
Magnetic resonance tagging (MRI) can be used to study intramyocardial trains in human in vivo. We wished to determine whether patients with severe mitral regurgitation demonstrate subtle myocardial contractile dysfunction despite normal left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) and how, mitral valve repair (MVR) may preserve EF in such patients. MRI was(More)
Delayed contrast-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (ceCMR) delineates infarct size. The presence of hypoenhancement consistent with microvascular obstruction (MO) signifies larger infarcts with a worse prognosis. We hypothesized that the size of the contrast defect (CD) on ceCMR in acutely infarcted myocardium may change during infarct healing and(More)
Two-dimensional analysis techniques were applied to breathhold magnetic resonance (MR) tagged images in humans to better understand left ventricular (LV) mechanics 8 weeks after large reperfused first anterior myocardial infarction (MI). Eighteen patients (aged 51 +/- 13 yr, 15 men) were studied 8 +/- 1 weeks after first anterior MI as were 9 volunteers,(More)
Previous studies have documented the safety of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of stents in vitro, when placed in animals in vivo, and in patients after elective stent placement. The safety of imaging patients' with stents early after myocardial infarction (MI) has not been examined. We studied 13 patients in an MRI study of myocardial viability on day 3(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated associations between atherosclerosis risk factors (smoking behavior, serum cholesterol, hypertension, body mass index, and functional capacity) and psychological characteristics with suspected linkages to coronary disease (depression, hostility, and anger expression) in an exclusively female cohort. METHODS Six hundred(More)

The USDA–ARS National Small Grains Collection (NSGC) is one of the several components of the National Plant Germplasm System. The NSGC is a working collection in contrast to the base collection at the National Seed Storage Laboratory (NSSL) at Fort Collins, CO. The numbers of accessions in the NSGC are summarized Table 1. The systematic evaluation of wheat(More)
