Linking CMR myocardial tissue characterization with cardiac performance

posted on 20.11.2018, 21:07 by BENEDICT THOMAS COSTELLO
Magnetic resonance imaging was used to assess scar in the heart muscle and flow through the heart using novel imaging techniques. The thesis has developed methods to measure scar after a heart attack and in patients with heart failure, and developed a new method of analysing blood flow as it passes through the heart chambers. This new measure of blood flow has potential to identify patients at high risk of stroke.
