A quantitative comparison of regional myocardial motion in mice, rabbits and humans using in-vivo phase contrast CMR

Abstract

BACKGROUND Genetically manipulated animals like mice or rabbits play an important role in the exploration of human cardiovascular diseases. It is therefore important to identify animal models that closely mimic physiological and pathological human cardiac function. METHODS In-vivo phase contrast cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) was used to measure… (More)
