PURPOSE To assess the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of double-oblique true fast imaging with steady-state precession (SSFP) cine MRI in distinguishing normal and bicuspid aortic valves. MATERIALS AND METHODS Echocardiograms on patients referred for MRI of the heart and thoracic aorta over a four-year period were reviewed retrospectively. A total of 17 patients with bicuspid aortic valve were identified and compared to 21 randomly chosen control patients. All patients had double… CONTINUE READING
