Rapid and Interactive Cardiovascular Imaging
Recently there has been an increased interest in the development of magnetic resonance (MR) for the study of the cardiovascular system. Important aspects of this development include coronary imaging, the measurement of myocardial perfusion, and quantitative blood flow measurement. For optimised imaging of the heart and vessels there is a requirement for an interactively controlled rapid imaging system.
