This research study can help understand how cardiac changes may occur with radiation therapy to the heart based off measurements obtained through biomarkers and cardiac imaging. Researche...
Assessment of wall thickness in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is of diagnostic and prognostic importance given its known association with sudden cardiac death. However, data regarding...
Friedreich's ataxia (FA) is an autosomal recessive disease with an incidence of 1/50,000 in the Caucasian population. The main manifestations of FA are progressive sensory and cerebellar a...
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging has been established as a promising three dimensional imaging modality with the ability to assess cardiac morphology, ventricular function, perfusion, vi...
Myocardial fibrosis is recognized as the pathologic entity of extracellular matrix remodeling. Diffuse, reactive fibrosis is increasingly recognized in a variety of conditions despite the ...
Limited data exist on the impact of contrast-enhanced echocardiography on treatment decisions in heart failure patients that require specific left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) criteria. This s...
Conventional pediatric echocardiography is crucial for diagnosing congenital heart disease (CHD), but the technique is impaired by angle dependency. Vector flow imaging (VFI) is an angle-independent n...
The emerging complexity of cardiac toxicity caused by cancer therapies has created demand for more advanced non-invasive methods to better evaluate cardiac structure, function, and myocardial tissue c...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the sensitivity of multiparametric cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) for the detection of acute cardiac allograft rejection (ACAR).
A quadricuspid aortic valve is an uncommon valve lesion. Its physical manifestations vary, and it may be associated with other cardiac lesions. Echocardiography is the imaging modality of choice, with...
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.
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 technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.
Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).
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.
