Abstract

Cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) holds considerable promise as a means of detecting abnormal blood flow patterns within the heart and great vessels. To date, the majority of techniques employed have required moderate to high field strengths. We describe a novel, low-field-strength approach that is technically undemanding and faster than conventional methods, which we have applied to the detection of aortic valve disease. A series of 26 patients with aortic stenosis or aortic regurgitation was compared with 21 normal subjects. All 20 patients with aortic stenosis and 15 of 16 patients with aortic regurgitation were identified. There were four false positives in the aortic stenosis group; all these patients had significant aortic regurgitation. There were no false positives in the aortic regurgitation group. Low-field cine MRI is a practical and useful technique for the detection of aortic valve disease.
