We aimed to investigate the clinical significance and prognostic value of matrilysin-2 in human colorectal cancer. Colorectal(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish cardiac magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) derived left ventricular (LV) global and region function parameters in normal adults. METHODS Twenty normal adults were examined with fast imaging employing steady-state(Fiesta) acquisition sequence of cardiac MRI, LV global function and LV region function were measured at basal, middle,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the left ventricular (LV) radial and longitudinal systolic function in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients by 3.0 T MR. METHODS Sixteen HCM (HCM group) and twenty normal adults (normal group) were examined with fast imaging employing steady-state (FIESTA) acquisition sequence of cardiac MRI. LV ejection fraction (LVEF),(More)
