Chapter 16. Aortic valve morphology

The excellent image quality of CMR makes it ideal for studying bicuspid aortic valves. Here we'll learn how to examine aortic valve morphology using CMR.
4 Steps

Chapter 17. Aortic stenosis

Learn how to assess the etiology and severity of aortic stenosis using CMR, and also how to assess the consequences for the aorta and left ventricle.
5 Steps

Chapter 18. Aortic regurgitation

CMR permits the direct quantification of aortic regurgitant volume. Here, we'll show you how this is done.
