Four-dimensional flow magnetic resonance imaging-based characterization of aortic morphometry and haemodynamics: impact of age, aortic diameter, and valve morphology.


AIMS Four-dimensional (4D) flow magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was employed for the simultaneous assessment of morphometry and flow parameters along the thoracic aorta to investigate associations between flow, age, aorta diameter, and aortic valve morphology. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and sixty-five subjects, 65 controls, 50 patients with bicuspid… (More)
