Abstract

Purpose:
To compare left ventricular (LV) volume and mass assessment using two-dimensional (2D) cine steady-state free precession (SSFP) and k-t space broad-use linear acquisition speed-up technique (k-t BLAST) accelerated 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Materials and Methods:
On a commercially available 1.5T MR scanner, 2D cine SSFP, six- and eight-fold accelerated 3D k-t BLAST were performed to evaluate LV volumes and mass in 17 volunteers. After semiautomatic segmentation of the different MR data sets, the resulting volumes and mass were compared according to the mean difference, 95% confidence interval, standard deviation (SD), Pearson's correlation coefficient, Bland-Altman analysis, and the Pitman-Morgan test.
Results:
Data acquisition was successful in all subjects. The number of required breathholds was reduced from a maximal of five for the 2D cine SSFP sequence to two for 3D k-t BLAST sequences. Comparing LV volumes, there was excellent agreement between 2D and 3D cine 8× k-t BLAST SSFP volumes (mean difference ± 2SD end-diastolic volume [EDV] = 5 ± 8 mL, end-systolic volume [ESV] = 1 ±12 mL, and stroke volume [SV] = 3 ± 8 mL), and mass (-1.8 ± 9 g).
Conclusion:
k-t BLAST-accelerated 3D sequences allow accurate assessment of LV volumes and mass compared to 2D cine SSFP. This method may reduce costs and increase patient comfort due to shortened data acquisition time and reduced number of breathholds.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
