The Top Ten Cases in Cardiac MRI and the Most Important Differential Diagnoses

Cardiac MR provides good functional information about both valvular stenosis and regurgitation, and allows accurate assessment of ventricular function and relevant cardiac and vascular anatomy. This technique makes it possible in a single exploration to study the anatomy of the heart, allowing qualitative, semi-quantitative, and quantitative assessments to be made of the parameters of cardiac anatomy and function.

Echocardiography for Medical Students

When patients present with symptoms outside the usual diagnostic window of cardiac troponins, DE-CMR may be especially useful. Find the sag slice where the right PA is seen is a circle. If you scan from base to apex the first few slices will be in the atria. Place an axial plane immediately above the right PA. The purpose of this page is to familiarize you with the planes, sequences, and protocols used in cardiac MR.

Both techniques are gated to the EKG to produce movies of the beating heart. The hypotensive patient can be a conundrum as far as fluid resuscitation and timely administration of pressors.

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR)

The main views of the heart for cardiologists and bedside clinicians are the long and short parasternal views, the apical and the subxiphoid. OSHs in Radiology. Short Axis view of left ventricle LV at the mitral valve base.

Transvenous spread. Echocardiography enables the bedside clinician to image the heart during a pulse check subxiphoid or parasternal view and objectively assess cardiac function, chamber size and the presence of effusion. The differential diagnosis from constrictive pericarditis may be necessary.

On physical exam the point of maximal intensity on the chest wall demarcates the cardiac apex. Patterns of ischemic enhancement The distribution of DHE from ischemia is typically subendocardial to transmural. Views 4 and 5 image the aorta, while images encompass a modified FAST exam.

Valvular diseases Cardiac MR provides good functional information about both valvular stenosis and regurgitation, and allows accurate assessment of ventricular function and relevant cardiac and vascular anatomy.
