Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a completely noninvasive method for visualizing cardiovascular anatomy but has had limited use for assessment of cardiac function. The authors evaluated the use of gated MRI for the quantification of regional myocardial contraction. Nine normal subjects underwent gated MRI of five transverse sections (7 mm thickness) through the left ventricle at five intervals in the cardiac cycle using a new technique called rotating gated sequence. All five sections were… CONTINUE READING
