CMR feature tracking vs CMR tagging.

Wouter M van Everdingen and his colleagues from UMCUtrecht in the Netherlands have compared strain analyses parameters in an attempt to predict which patients would benefit from Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT). They compared CMR feature tracking with Medis’QStrain, MR tagging and Echo speckle tracking in 27 CRT candidates. The conclusion of this work was that CVMR feature tracking is a potential clinical alternative for the MR tagging approach and echo speckle tracking, especially in the detection of discoordination in CRT candidates.
