Evaluation of myocardial motion tracking with cine-phase contrast magnetic resonance imaging.

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The accuracy of myocardial motion measurements, computed from cine-phase contrast (cine-PC) magnetic resonance (MR) velocity data, was compared with directly visualized motion of MR signal voids caused by implanted tantalum markers in anesthetized dogs. METHODS Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data were electrocardiogram-gated and… CONTINUE READING
