BACKGROUND Cardiac MRI is important in the treatment of children with congenital heart disease, but sufficient normative data are lacking. For ventricular volumes and mass, we sought to deliver reference centiles and to investigate sex effects. METHODS AND RESULTS We included 114 healthy children and adolescents, uniformly distributed spanning an age range of 4 to 20 years, as required by the Lambda-Mu-Sigma method to achieve a percentile distribution, thus avoiding arbitrary age categories… CONTINUE READING
