mDixon ECG-gated 3-dimensional cardiovascular magnetic resonance angiography in patients with congenital cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) angiography (CMRA) is an important non-invasive imaging tool for congenital heart disease (CHD) and aortopathy patients. The conventional 3D balanced steady-state free p...

AbstractCoronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is one of the most common procedures in the United States as many Americans suffer from coronary heart disease and undergo CABG each year. While CABG has been performed for decades, questions remain regarding the benefits graft marker placement provides for patient therapy and outcomes. Markers at the proximal graft anastomosis aim to improve the efficiency and reduce the risks of subsequent, post-coronary artery bypass grafting coronary angiography by decreasing fluoroscopy time and contrast volume used. Graft markers have been shown to reduce fluoroscopy time and contrast vo...

, Schreiber L, Quantitative Cardiac Imaging Study Group Abstract Cardiac imaging has a pivotal role in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of ischaemic heart disease. SPECT is most commonly used for clinical myocardial perfusion imaging, whereas PET is the clinical reference standard for the quantification of myocardial perfusion. MRI does not involve exposure to ionizing radiation, similar to echocardiography, which can be performed at the bedside. CT perfusion imaging is not frequently used but CT offers coronary angiography data, and invasive catheter-based methods can measure coronary flow and pressure. Te...
