Mean thoracic aortic wall thickness determination by cine MRI with steady-state free precession: validation with dark blood imaging.

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To assess the validity and reliability of measuring mean aortic wall thickness (MAWT) of the ascending and descending aorta using cine steady-state free precession (SSFP) imaging compared to dark blood (DB) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS DB and SSFP images of the thoracic aorta acquired at 1.5 T in 50 volunteers (26 women, 24 men… (More)
