Left ventricular diastolic function has been evaluated by means of analysis of the flow pattern through the mitral valve. Velocity-encoded cine magnetic resonance imaging (VEC-MR) is a new method for characterizing flow patterns in the heart. The feasibility of using VEC-MR to measure early diastolic (E) and atrial systolic (A) peak flow velocities and E/A ratios in the mitral inflow, as well as systolic (X), early diastolic (Y), and atrial systolic (Z) peak flow velocities and X/Y ratios in… CONTINUE READING
