OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ability of velocity-encoded nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging to quantify left to right intracardiac shunts in patients with an atrial septal defect. BACKGROUND Quantification of intracardiac shunts is clinically important in planning therapy. METHODS Velocity-encoded NMR imaging was used to quantify stroke flow in the aorta and in the main pulmonary artery in a group of patients who were known to have an increased pulmonary to… CONTINUE READING
