Imaging of carotid artery vessel wall edema using T2-weighted cardiovascular magnetic resonance
Background: Atherothrombosis remains a major health problem in the western world, and carotid atherosclerosis is an important contributor to embolic ischemic strokes. It remains a clinical challenge to identify rupture-prone atherosclerotic plaques before clinical events occur. Inflammation, endothelial injury and...

Subclinical myocardial inflammation and diffuse fibrosis are common in systemic sclerosis - a clinical study using myocardial T1-mapping and extracellular volume quantification
Background: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is characterised by multi-organ tissue fibrosis including the myocardium. Diffuse myocardial fibrosis can be detected non-invasively by T1 and extracellular volume (ECV) quantification, while focal myocardial inflammation and fibrosis may be detected by T2-weighted and late...

Quantitative three-dimensional cardiovascular magnetic resonance myocardial perfusion imaging in systole and diastole
Background: Two-dimensional (2D) perfusion cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) remains limited by a lack of complete myocardial coverage. Three-dimensional (3D) perfusion CMR addresses this limitation and has recently been shown to be clinically feasible. However, the feasibility and potential clinical utility...
