Multiparametric cardiovascular magnetic resonance for the assessment of cardiac function and metabolism in hypertrophy and heart failure

Abstract:

Both hypertrophied and failing hearts are characterised by pathological left ventricular (LV) remodelling, impaired myocardial energy status and alteration in substrate metabolism. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) are powerful tools in the characterisation of these disease conditions. More recent techniques have allowed assessment of myocardial steatosis using 1H-MRS and tissue oxygenation using blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD...
