Abstract

To establish cardiac MRI as a tool for noninvasive evaluation of activation patterns, 10 healthy volunteers were examined by cine segmented turboFLASH imaging sequences. Sequence modifications for low signal blood- pool appearance were applied, i.e., bilateral spatial saturation for segmented turboFLASH imaging. Pixelwise calculation of first-harmonic Fourier phase values (displayed as color-encoded maps) reveal either anterior septal or left ventricular free-wall sites as areas of earliest phase spreading towards posterior paraseptal sites in segmented turboFLASH scans. Phase scatter is lower in unsaturated than spatially presaturated segmented turboFLASH studies. Phase standard deviation in areas of endocardial displacement is higher in basal than apical slice positions in these scans. Early results indicate that first-harmonic Fourier phase analysis of cardiac- segmented turboFLASH MRI cine studies may provide a tool for noninvasive studies of cardiac activation sequence.
