4D MRI enables blood-velocity measurement in mitral valve insufficiency
June 24, 2005 -- BERLIN - Mitral valve insufficiency is a fairly common heart problem that lacks ideal imaging solutions. The problem lies in assessing regurgitant blood flow to determine the need for intervention. A presentation Thursday at the Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (CARS) meeting discussed the limitations in assessing blood flow, and highlighted a new measurement approach using time-resolved MRI vector fields.
