PURPOSE To study the agreement between experienced and inexperienced observers before and after training using a standardized evaluation protocol for cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) measurements of left ventricular (LV) volumes, mass and infarct size. MATERIALS AND METHODS First, 10 CMR studies from patients with myocardial infarction were analyzed by 2 experienced and 4 inexperienced observers in respect to end-diastolic volume (EDV), end-systolic volume (ESV), ejection fraction (EF… CONTINUE READING
