Title: Evaluation of congenital heart disease by cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Abstract

The authors studied 11 adult patients (pts) with atrial septal defect (ASD) and 4 adult pts with ventricular septal defect (VSD) using cine magnetic resonance. All studies were performed using a .6T superconducting magnet with ECG gating and electronic axial rotation when appropriate. Repeated multislice image with no change in physiologic delay of the spin echo pulse sequence, but varying the time by offsetting one slice at each imaging stage allowed for an N x N collection of data where N is the number of slices in one collection set and is equal to the number of sets collected. Algebraic manipulation of the T1 weighted images (TE=30mSec TR

  • Focusing primarily on MR imaging of the heart, this book covers other diagnostic imaging modalities as well. The authors review new technologies and diagnostic procedures pertinent to congenital heat disease and present each congenital heat abnormality as a separate entity.
  • Two patients with cardiac involvement of hydatid disease are presented: one with hydatid cyst of the interventricular septum and pulmonary arteries and the other with multiple pulmonary cysts associated with intracardiac and pericardial cysts. The ability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to provide a global view of cardiac anatomy in any plane with high contrast between flowing blood and soft tissue ensures it an important role in the diagnosis and preoperative assessment of hydatid disease of the heart.
  • Two new oblique views on cine computed tomography for examination of the left ventricle of the heart are described. A short-axis view sections the left ventricle transversely, demonstrating all the ventricular walls; a long-axis view sections the left ventricle longitudinally, demonstrating the mitral valve, proximal aortic root, aortic outflow tract, and ventricular apex. These views are produced by a combination of table slew and patient positioning. Reproducible short-axis views were obtained in 16 healthy volunteers and 11 patients. Long-axis views were obtained in 11 patients. Patient studies in the long- and short-axis views were compared with results from angiocardiography, withmore » nearly identical findings.« less
  • In this edition, ultrasonography has been integrated with studies in plain film and angiocardiography. Pathophysiology of the various lesions is thoroughly described in simple terms. Numerous, high quality illustrations supplement the text.
  • The book retains its previous format with chapters on embryology, plain film interpretation, classification of pulmonary vascular patterns, cardiac malpositions and vascular anomalies, and illustrative cases. The book is organized with an abundance of illustrative figures, diagrams, and image reproductions. These include plain chest radiographs, angiograms, echocardiograms, and MR images. The authors present the pathophysiology and imaging of congenital heart lesions.
