Four-dimensional, flow-sensitive magnetic resonance imaging of blood flow patterns in thoracic aortic dissections
The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, 08/17/2012
Francois CJ et al. – Four–dimensional, flow–sensitive magnetic resonance imaging at 3.0T provided qualitative and quantitative information on alterations of aortic flow in patients with thoracic aortic dissection. Future application of this magnetic resonance flow methodology may help provide insights into the pathophysiology and effects of flow alterations and establish prognostic indicators for the development of complications or aneurysm growth in patients with aortic dissection.
