Left Atrial 4-Dimensional Flow Magnetic Resonance Imaging – Stasis and Velocity Mapping in Patients With Atrial Fibrillation

Markl 1AObjectives: Left atrial (LA) 4-dimensional flow magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to derive anatomic maps of LA stasis, peak velocity, and timeto-peak (TTP) velocity in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and to identify relationships between LA flow with LA volume and patient characteristics.
