Histological validation of ShMOLLI equilibrium contrast CMR for the measurement of diffuse myocardial fibrosis

Abstract

Methods In fourteen patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis awaiting valve surgery, we performed equilibrium contrast CMR (EQ-CMR: [Flett AS et al. Circulation 2010;122(2):138-44]) to calculate Vd(m) using ShMOLLI (Shortened Modified Look-Locker Inversion recovery [Piechnik at al. JCMR 2010;12:69]) and standard multibreathold (FLASH) mapping, for… (More)
