Fast, high-resolution in vivo cine magnetic resonance imaging in normal and failing mouse hearts on a vertical 11.7 T system.
PURPOSE: To establish fast, high-resolution in vivo cine magnetic resonance imaging (cine-MRI) on a vertical 11.7-T MR system and to investigate the stability of normal and failing mouse hearts in the vertical position. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To optimize the method on a high-field system, various MR-related parameters, such as relaxation times and the need for respiratory gating, were quantitatively investigated. High-resolution cine-MRI was applied to normal mice and to a murine heart failur...Expand abstract
