Magnetic resonance imaging in valvular heart disease: Clinical application and current role for patient management
Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 05/18/2012Sommer G et al.
This review addresses current applications and limitations of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging techniques that are used in VHD including cine–balanced steady–state free precession (b–SSFP), phase contrast MR (pcMR), gradient–recalled echo (GRE), and turbo–spin echo (TSE) sequences. Moreover, it describes their application for evaluation of valvular pathologies and gives an overview on the current role of valvular CMR in patient management.
