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


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)
