Delayed-Enhancement Magnetic Resonance

Feb 1, 2019 by in MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Comments Off on Delayed-Enhancement Magnetic Resonance

• Delayed-enhancement cardiac magnetic resonance (DE-CMR) can identify reversible myocardial dysfunction before coronary revascularization, predict improvement in contractile function in patients with reperfused acute myocardial infarction, and predict response to…

Pericardial Disease

Feb 1, 2019 by in MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Comments Off on Pericardial Disease

• Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is ideally suited for imaging the pericardium because of its large field of view and ability to differentiate soft tissue based on fat and water…

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Feb 1, 2019 by in MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Comments Off on Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

• CMR employs multiple techniques in HCM patients to assess LV/RV cardiac function, hypertrophy, morphology, flow, velocities, perfusion, and fibrosis. • Clinical application includes detecting early phenotype expression, characterizing established…

Iron Cardiomyopathy

Feb 1, 2019 by in MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Comments Off on Iron Cardiomyopathy

• Iron cardiomyopathy remains the leading cause of death in transfusional siderosis. • Heart and endocrine gland iron overload occurs from chronic exposure to nontransferrin bound iron. • Different organs…

Simple Congenital Heart Disease

Feb 1, 2019 by in MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Comments Off on Simple Congenital Heart Disease

• The distinction between “simple” and “complex” congenital heart disease is not well defined. In this chapter, simple congenital heart disease describes uncomplicated anatomic defects or shunt lesions that are…

Myocarditis

Feb 1, 2019 by in MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Comments Off on Myocarditis

• Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) can be used to assess myocardial inflammation. • A single CMR study provides comprehensive information on ventricular size, morphology, function, pericardial involvement, and inflammatory activity….

Complex Congenital Heart Disease

Feb 1, 2019 by in MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Comments Off on Complex Congenital Heart Disease

• Anatomic delineation of complex CHD is just that–complex. No assumptions should be made regarding anatomy; segments (atria, ventricles, and great vessels), intersegmental connections (atria-to-ventricle and ventricle-to-great vessel), and venous…

Myocardial Masses

Feb 1, 2019 by in MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Comments Off on Myocardial Masses

• The diagnosis of an intracardiac mass requires definition of location, extent, hemodynamic effect, and tissue characteristics. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is ideally suited to provide this information. • CMR…
