In this study we assessed the use of a steady state free precession (SSFP) cine sequence in a series of radially orientated long axis slices for the measurement of left ventricular volumes and mass. We validated the radial long axis approach in phantoms and ex vivo porcine hearts and applied it to normal volunteers and patients using the SSFP and turbo gradient-echo (TGE) sequences. High quality images were obtained for analysis, and the measured volumes with radial long axis SSFP sequence… CONTINUE READING
