  • Background Diastolic dysfunction is often used as a marker for allograft rejection and may even precede systolic abnormalities. However, diastolic indices provided by echocardiography can be of inconsistent quality with low sensitivities. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) with high temporal resolution cine imaging offers an alternate noninvasive method for evaluating ventricular function. The purpose of this study is to describe CMR LV diastology indices in a cohort of heart transplant patients… CONTINUE READING
