Purpose: T1 mapping has been recognized for its ability to characterized myocardial tissue to improve the detection of cardiac disease . Native T1 has shown its role in determining myocardial fibrosis without injecting contrast media. To differentiate the fibrosis tissue with the normal one, the evaluatio[...]
Methods and materials: Retrospective analysis of 1.5T MOLLI sequence MRI data (Figure 1) acquired with motion correction was applied to map native T1 by using Custom-written software (developed in MATLAB version 7.14, The MathWorks, Natick, MA, USA) in the myocardium of 63 patients that turned out to have a normal heart e[...]
Results: Median myocardial native T1 values were significantly lower than the means (P<0.001) as seen in Table 1 and Figure 2. The median assessment produced significantly less segmental T1 variation among patients with higher fitting precision (P<0.001) in the global and segmental analysis. Evaluated [...]
Conclusion: Median assessment reduces measurement variability in global and segmental native T1 mapping of the myocardium. Variation of normal heart T1 values was apparent on segmental analysis, a novel finding with implications for pathological evaluation.
