The initial success of coronary stenting is leading to a proliferation in peripheral stenting. A significant portion of the stents used in a clinical setting are made of 316 low carbon stainless steel (SS). Other alloys that have been used for stent manufacture include tantalum, MP35N, and...
Respiratory motion during acquisition of first-pass myocardial perfusion images results in translation, distortion from out-of-plane motion, and changes in left ventricular geometry. Together these effects make visual image analysis more difficult and limit methods of quantitative analysis of...
Volume and phase characteristics of the left ventricle (LV) and left atrium (LA) were assessed in 31 healthy Asian adults (19 males and 12 females) using cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and an automated boundary detection algorithm. Volume indexes of the LV and LA were smaller than...
Volume renderings from magnetic resonance imaging data can be created and displayed in real-time with user interactivity. This can provide continuous 3D feedback to assist in guiding an interventional procedure. A system is presented which can produce real-time volume renderings from 2D...
The biophysical properties of the aortic wall seems to play a significant role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, aneurysm formation, Marfan's syndrome, and in normal aging. The presence and the proportion of smooth muscle, collagen, and elastin...
Currently, adenosine or dipyridamole is commonly used for the assessment of perfusion reserve. With intolerance to these agents, dobutamine can be used alternatively or it can be used for a combined examination of wall motion and perfusion. The aim of the study was to analyze the feasibility of...
Aims / hypothesis: To investigate whether alterations in high-energy phosphates occur in the myocardium of persons with diabetes mellitus type I. Microvascular abnormalities and dysfunction via thickening of the basement membrane are known to occur in diabetic patients. Myocardial high-energy...
