PURPOSE The present study aims to evaluate the diagnostic value of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) feature tracking (FT) derived strain-analysis of both ventricles in patients with acute myocarditis (ACM) in order to improve its currently still challenging non-invasive diagnosis. METHODS CMR cine data of 31 patients with clinically suspected ACM and confirmation of diagnosis by CMR according to the Lake Louise criteria as well as 14 patients with clinically diagnosed ACM but inconspicuous… CONTINUE READING
