MAGNETOM Flash1 – SCMR/EuroCMR Edition – Issue 61


A significant part of this issue is dedicated to myocardial parameter mapping (native T1 and extracellular volume fraction, ECV), new methods that have brought a new dimension to non-invasive myocardial tissue characterization. But there is also a focus on How-I-do-it: Improving CMR efficiency with the Cardiac Dot Engine; Significantly reduced post-processing time with syngo.via MR Cardiac Analysis; Reliable routine CMR imaging with a 1.5T MAGNETOM ESSENZA. The CMR Spotlight introduces the MUST project where structural and functional changes in myocardial and skeletal muscles, induced by ultra-endurance running, are detected.
