|Study Design:||Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
|Official Title:||Resonance Magnetic Imaging at the Acute Phase of Endocarditis: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Impact|
- Modification of therapeutic project [ Time Frame: As soon as RMI is performed ]
- Modification of diagnostic classification (Duke modified criteria) [ Time Frame: As soon as RMI is performed ]
|Study Start Date:||June 2005|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2008|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|No Intervention: 1||
Behavioral: Modification of therapy
Modification of the surgery date if adapted, modification of the antibiotics if adapted, based on RMI results
Patients with definite or possible infective endocarditis are included in this protocol, at the acute phase of the disease.
Resonance magnetic imaging (head and abdomen) will be performed systematically before Day 7.
The impact on the diagnosis and therapeutic options will be assessed, as compared to pre resonance magnetic nuclear (RMN) imaging declaration.
