Thomas Gorter and his team from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands have carried out a very nice study on the Stationary Flow fit for PC Flow images.

Their conclusions among others are that:

  1. background correction for phase offset significantly changes the quantification of pulmonary regurgitation (PR);
  2. non-corrected assessment of PR may result in misclassification of patients;
  3. their data suggest that the use of PR volume is favourable in the follow-up of patients with repaired Tetralogy of Fallot.
