OBJECTIVES To delineate the cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) appearances of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), in comparison with transthoracic echocardiographs. METHODS Cardiac MR was performed on 22 patients with SLE-11 with previous CVD and 11 matched controls-using late gadolinium contrast enhancement (LGE) to identify areas of myocardial scarring; Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) was performed on the same day. RESULTS Twenty female and… CONTINUE READING
