Analysis of pulse wave velocity in the thoracic aorta by flow-sensitive four-dimensional MRI: Reproducibility and correlation with characteristics in patients with aortic atherosclerosis
Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 05/04/2012
Markl M et al. – Flow–sensitive 4D MRI allows for estimating aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) with low observer dependence and moderate test–retest reliability. PWV in patients correlated with age, aortic valve insufficiency, and pulse pressure.
