Routine cine-CMR for assessment of prosthesis-associated mitral regurgitation - a multicenter, multivendor study

Abstract

Background Mitral regurgitation (MR) is clinically important for patients with prosthetic mitral valves (PMV). While CMR can quantify MR based on flow, this requires dedicated imaging. Cine-CMR (SSFP) provides an alternative approach, whereby MR can be graded based on regurgitation-associated intervoxel dephasing. As cine-CMR is a standard component of nearly all exams, it could be used to screen for patients who warrant further quantitative imaging. Diagnostic performance of cine-CMR for prosthesis-associated MR has not been evaluated.
