BACKGROUND Recently, cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has been shown to allow accurate visualisation and quantification of aortic valve disease. Although bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) disease is relatively rare in the general population, the frequency is high in patients requiring valve surgery. The aim of the current study was to characterise the different phenotypes of BAV disease by CMR. METHODS CMR studies were performed on a 1.5 T scanner in 105 patients with BAV.
