Aims Identification of left atrial (LA) fibrosis through late gadolinium-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance (LGE-CMR) remains controversial due to the heterogeneity and lack of reproducibility of proposed methods. Our aim is to describe a normalized, reproducible, standardized method to evaluate LA fibrosis through LGE-CMR. Methods and results Electrocardiogram- and respiratory-gated 3-Tesla LGE-CMR was performed in 10 healthy young volunteers and 30 patients with atrial fibrillation (AF… CONTINUE READING
