The added value of streamline visualization in the evaluation of left atrioventricular valve flow and left ventricular diastolic function with 4DFlow MRI

Abstract

Background 4DFlow MRI with retrospective valve tracking allows trans-valvular blood flow quantification. Valve tracking usually follows the anatomical annulus but does not take into account the inflow direction through the valve, which might lead to substantial errors when opening of the valve leaflets is restricted after surgery. We aimed to evaluate the added value of streamline visualization in the characterization and quantification of trans-left atrioventricular valve (LAVV) blood flow and assessment of left ventricular (LV) diastolic function in 4DFlow MRI.
