Cardiothoracic Imaging Techniques

Cardiothoracic imaging techniques are techniques used to visualize the heart and surrounding structures. Examples of imaging techniques that are used to screen patients for particular diseases include echocardiography, nuclear imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In echocardiography, ultrasound waves are used to produce a 2-dimensional […]

Myocardial T1 and T2 Mapping

The cardiovascular system can be monitored and its functionality assessed with cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. New techniques for CMR imaging have been developed in recent years. These include T1 and T2 image mapping, which are non-invasive imaging techniques that have been quickly integrated into […]
