Intercentre reproducibility of cardiac apparent diffusion coefficient and fractional anisotropy in healthy volunteers.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Diffusion tensor cardiac magnetic resonance (DT-CMR) enables probing of the microarchitecture of the myocardium, but the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and fractional anisotropy (FA) reported in healthy volunteers have been inconsistent. The aim of this study was to validate a stimulated-echo diffusion sequence using phantoms, and to assess the intercentre reproducibility of in-vivo diffusion measures using the sequence. METHODS AND RESULTS: A stimulated-echo, cardiac-gated ...
