By Jan Bogaert, Steven Dymarkowski, Andrew M. Taylor, Vivek Muthurangu

Clinical Cardiac MRI is a accomplished textbook meant for everybody interested in magnetic resonance imaging of the guts. it's designed either as an invaluable consultant for rookies to the sphere and as an reduction in case you commonly practice such stories. the 1st version, released in 2004-5, was once rather well obtained in the cardiac imaging group, and has more often than not been thought of the reference as a result of its completeness, its readability, and the quantity and caliber of the illustrations. furthermore, the addition of a CD-ROM displaying 50 real-life instances considerably better the worth of the booklet. during this moment version, the purpose has been to keep up an identical caliber whereas incorporating the latest insights and advancements during this speedily evolving area of clinical imaging. The 4 editors, all specialists within the box, have taken nice care to make sure a homogeneous excessive regular in the course of the publication. eventually, the choice of a hundred real-life situations, additional as on-line fabric, will extra improve the price of this textbook.

2 Navigator Gating In longer imaging sequences such as gated whole heart MR angiography, the above-mentioned strategies have little chance of success. These longer acquisitions need a different approach to respiratory motion compensation such as respiratory navigators (Keegan et al. 1999). Fundamentally these are simple MR measurements of diaphragmatic position that enable data acquisition to be restricted to certain points in the respiratory cycle. This technique will be briefly described here, since it is elaborated in ‘‘Coronary Artery Disease’’.

This precludes the use of ce-MRA as it is essentially a 3D single shot technique. Obvious examples of structures that move significantly during the cardiac cycle are the coronary arteries. In fact, gated noncontrast angiography was developed in order to visualize coronary arteries (MRCA). A more timely reason to reduce the use of ce-MRA sequences is the increasing concern regarding the safety profile of Gd contrast agents. 28 V. Muthurangu and S.
