Acute myocarditis is a serious illness affecting a young population with a very variable course (of full recovery at the onset of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), or even sudden death). Very ...

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance GUIDEd Insertion of Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator in Dilated CardioMyopathy

CMR GUIDE DCM is a randomized controlled trial with a registry for non-randomized patients. Patients enrolled will have non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM) with mild to severe Left Ventric...

Intraventricular Stasis in Non Ischemic Dilated Myocardiopathy

This study is designed to quantify the ventricular stasis in patients with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy by post-processing of 2D color Doppler echocardiography images in order to es...

Children With Acute Myocarditis Often Have Persistent Subclinical Changes as Revealed by Cardiac Magnetic Resonance.

Many children presenting with myocarditis may not fully recover and have long-term complications, including dilated cardiomyopathy. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has a potential for early detection...

Sudden cardiac death in patients with myocarditis: Evaluation, risk stratification, and management.

Myocarditis is a major cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in young adults. Cardiac magnetic resonance is the established tool for the diagnosis of myocarditis, and la...

Prognostic Impact of Ischemic Mitral Regurgitation Severity and Myocardial Infarct Quantification by Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance.

This study sought to evaluate the role of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) for the quantification of ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) and myocardial infarct size (MIS) in patients with ischemic car...

Myoglobin for Detection of High-Risk Patients with Acute Myocarditis.

There is an unmet need for accurate and practical screening to detect myocarditis. We sought to test the hypothesis that the extent of acute myocarditis, measured by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) ...

Association of ECG parameters with late gadolinium enhancement and outcome in patients with clinical suspicion of acute or subacute myocarditis referred for CMR imaging.

Risk stratification of myocarditis is challenging due to variable clinical presentations. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is the primary non-invasive imaging modality to investigate myocarditi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

Inflammatory processes of the muscular walls of the heart (MYOCARDIUM) which result in injury to the cardiac muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Manifestations range from subclinical to sudden death (DEATH, SUDDEN). Myocarditis in association with cardiac dysfunction is classified as inflammatory CARDIOMYOPATHY usually caused by INFECTION, autoimmune diseases, or responses to toxic substances. Myocarditis is also a common cause of DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY and other cardiomyopathies.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED).
