Abstract

We compare a saturation recovery arrhythmia insensitive rapid (AIR) T1 mapping technique which is less sensitive to heart rate and requires shorter breath-holds to modified Look-Locker inversion recovery (MOLLI) T1 mapping in patients with mitral valve prolapse. 55 patients underwent AIR and MOLLI at 1.5 T. AIR and MOLLI-derived blood and myocardial T1 values and extracellular volume (ECV) were measured by two independent readers. T1 values and ECV from both techniques and inter-reader agreement were compared with Lin's concordance correlation coefficient (LCC) and reduced major axis regression. T1 values were consistently overestimated for AIR compared to MOLLI and vice versa for ECV. In th..
