The Diagnostic Challenges of Myocarditis: Importance of Bioimaging Signatures with Parametric Mapping

Technical advances in cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) enable both qualitative and quantitative assessment of myocardial inflammation non-invasively. [...]

Role of CMR in Non-ischemic Cardiomyopathies

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) plays a growing role in therapeutic decision-making as it allows differentiation of etiologies and provides prognostic information. [...]

How to do Cardiac Single Voxel 1H Spectroscopy

Protocols for performing single voxel proton spectroscopy of the myocardium, with PRESS, are described for both 1.5 and 3 T. [...]

MAGNETOM Skyra: The Mannheim Perspective

For over one year the 3T MAGNETOM Skyra has been used for scientific projects and clinical imaging at the University Medical Center (UMM) Mannheim. The UMM Mannheim was the first site in the world to install the Skyra. [...]

Compressed Sensing: A Great Opportunity to Shift the Paradigm of Cardiac MRI to Real-Time

Cardiac MRI is particularly well suited to benefit from a group of novel image reconstruction methods known as compressed sensing that promise to speed up data acquisition. This article provides a brief introduction to the topic. [...]
