The Medis MassK mode for the assessment of the MR myocardial mass plus trabeculations and papillary muscles attracted positive interest at the ESR in Vienna.

Several oral presentations were given:

  • B-0459: Cardiac magnetic resonance volume analysis in patients with single ventricle
    F. Secchi, M. Petrini, A. Cozzi, P. CannaĆ², F. Sardanelli; Milan/IT
    Conclusion: SV and AF values, calculated with Mass-K mode technique in SVentr patients, show no significant difference. A highly reproducible method to estimate cardiac function in SVentr patients was validated. Due to the absence of other noninvasive techniques, this CMR method can lead clinical/surgical decision making.
  • B-0462: Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) evaluation of non-compacted myocardium: comparison of two software packages
    E. Pershina1, M. Gutberlet2, M. Grothoff2; 1Moscow/RU, 2Leipzig/DE
    Conclusion: According to the better overall inter- and intra-observer agreement and lower evaluation times, the semi-automated QMassMR method with a special algorithm for trabeculation detection seems to be advantageous in LVNC patients.
  • B-1310: Assessment of left-ventricle non-compacted myocardium magnetic resonance parameters modified by novel semi-automatic pixel intensity-based approach of trabeculae measurement
    E. Pershina, V. Sinitsin, E. Mershina; Moscow/RU
    Conclusion: Novel semi-automatic pixel intensity-based approach in LVNC is an effective tool for quantification of non-compacted myocardial volumes. But its application in some cases may give results contradicting with previously proposed LVNC diagnostic criteria so further research in this field is needed.
