Detection and quantification of dysfunctional myocardium by magnetic resonance imaging. A new three-dimensional method for quantitative wall-thickening analysis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Regional left ventricular dysfunction is a major consequence of myocardial ischemia, and its extent determines long-term prognosis. Accurate and reproducible analysis of left ventricular dysfunction is therefore useful for risk stratification and patient management. METHODS AND RESULTS Short-axis cardiac cine magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was… (More)
