Heart failure is not always due to an alteration in systolic function, and a diastolic dysfunction could explain many cases of heart failure with a normal systolic function. Diastolic function depends on the left ventricular filling capacity to ensure a normal stroke volume. It is routinely measured with transthoracic echocardiography, as it is an easily accessible non-invasive test. The MRI, using flow sequences, shows good agreement with the echocardiography, analysing the diastolic function… CONTINUE READING
