Cardiac MRI is an accurate, noninvasive modality for assessing the structure and function of the murine heart. In addition to conventional imaging, MRI tissue tracking methods can quantify numerous aspects of myocardial mechanics, including intramyocardial displacement, strain, twist, and torsion. In the present study, we developed and applied a novel pulse… CONTINUE READING
