Estimation of the Myocardial Extracellular Volume Fraction from Dynamic Contrast-Enhancement Measurements and Comparison with Partition Coefficient Measurements

Abstract

Introduction: Recent studies have shown that myocardial T1 after administration of an extracellular Gd-based contrast agent and the myocardial partition coefficient represent novel biomarkers of diffuse fibrosis, which may be not recognized by standard methods for imaging delayed contrast enhancement [1-2]. Such novel markers of diffuse fibrosis and… (More)
