Application Note: Cardiac MR Imaging in Mice: Morphometry and Functional Assessment
29 April 2014
In cardiac MR imaging of mice a variety of different imaging techniques are available ranging from morphometry, strain and velocity imaging, angiography, to perfusion and myocardial function, to name a few. This report describes examples of cardiac MR imaging applications in mice are provided with a focus on morphometric and cardiac function assessment. Practical considerations for cardiac MR in mice are outlined and current trends - such as the trend towards self gating techniques - are surveyed.
