Die Rolle der Magnetresonanz in der kardiologischen Diagnostik unter besonderer Berücksichgiung myokardialer Gewebeveränderungen
In the presented scientific works new approaches and techniques were developed for: - Application of 31P-MR spectroscopy in myocardial ischaemia - Reproducibility of MRI for the measurement of left ventricular parameter of mass and volume in dilated cardiomyopathy - Suitability of 2-dimensional MRI techniques for measuring left ventricular parameter of mass and volume in dilated cardiomyopathy - Quantification of stenotic orifices by MRI in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and aortic valve stenosis - Visualisation of the inflammatory activity of the myocardium in myocarditis - Visualisation of the inflammatory changes in cardiac sarcoidosis - Early visualization of the toxic myocardial injury after anthracycline therapy. The value of MRI was tested in experimental and clinical studies in comparison to established modalities. The results have shown that it is possible to transmit the physical possibilities into clinically applicable protocols and to apply them into clinical routine.
