Evaluation of Cardiac Function With Cardio-respiratory Synchronized MRI

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02728284

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this investigation is to evaluate newer methods of performing cardiovascular MRI (CMR) that will provide new kinds of information related to the interplay between the cardiac and the respiratory cycles, such as the interaction between the left ventricle and the right ventricle during respiration . The primary statistical objective is to provide preliminary indications of the relative utility of the investigational imaging software in terms of image quality and suitability for routine clinical use. Image quality will be expressed in terms of signal-to-noise ratios (SNR), contrast-to-noise ratios (CNR) and subjective Likert-type qualitative assessments independently provided by each of multiple blinded readers for each image. Suitability for routine use will be assessed in terms of imaging time and a binary indicator of whether, in the opinion of the investigator, adverse procedural complications (not expected) were encountered during a given imaging session.

Active Comparator: Abnormal Cardiovascular System
30 without any history of heart or lung disease
Procedure: Conventional Cardiologic Evaluation
ECG (gating), and respiratory motion effects

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Image Quality measured by resolution [ Time Frame: 10 Minutes ]
  2. Image Quality measured by signal to noise [ Time Frame: 10 Minutes ]
  3. Suitability for routine use measured by imaging time and ease of use [ Time Frame: 10 Minutes ]

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects will be selected as they are scheduled for clinical MR examinations.
  • Subjects will be selected on the basis of their willingness and ability to participate, on their comprehension of the informed consent document, on their likelihood of completing the study, and on the clinical appropriateness of the investigational technique for a given patient.

Exclusion Criteria:
