Mobile cardiac cine-MRI. A: male, 52-years-old, stage 23, 1,569 km (cine SSFP GRE, 2-chamber view): Focus is the left ventricle (1), myocardium (2). papillary muscles (3), right ventricle (4), lung (5), liver (6), left kidney (7), spleen (8), stomach (9). A2, A3: Specific post-processing makes functional volumetry of left ventricle and myocardium possible (green line: epicardium, red line: endocardium). B: male, 52-years-old, stage 25, 1,706 km (cine SSFP GRE, 3-chamber view): left ventricle (1), myocardium (2), papillary muscles (3), left atrium (4), lung (5), mitral valve (6), aortic valve (7), pulmonary vein (8), aorta (9), thoracic spine (10). C: male, 49-years-old, stage 26, 1,770 km (cine tagging SSFP GRE, four-chamber view): MR tagging of the left ventricle (1) makes quantification of the myocardial (2) motion with its spatial orientation possible. D: female, 45-years-old, stage 38, 2,601 km (phase contrast transversal): Ascending aortic (1) flow is measured by specific velocity-encoded (venc) MR imaging. Descending aorta (2), pulmonary artery (3), liver (4), lung (5). E: Selection of possible cardiac parameters measurable by cardiac cine-MRI.
