3D MRI provides improved visualization and detection of aortic arch plaques compared to transesophageal echocardiography
Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 05/03/2012
Harloff A et al. – Due to improved visualization of the aorta 3D magnetic resonance imaging (3D MRI) allows to detect more complex plaques than transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). This renders 3D MRI particularly valuable for patients with cryptogenic stroke and for trials evaluating optimal treatment in aortic atherosclerosis.
