Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cardiac computed tomography (CT) produces high-quality anatomical images of the cardiac valves and associated structures. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides images of valve morphology, and allows quantitative evaluation of valvular dysfunction and determination of the impact of valvular lesions on cardiovascular structures. Recent studies have demonstrated that cardiac CT and MRI are important adjuncts to echocardiography for the evaluation of aortic and mitral valvular heart diseases (VHDs). Radiologists should be aware of the technical aspects of cardiac CT and MRI that allow comprehensive assessment of aortic and mitral VHDs, as well as the typical imaging features of common and important aortic and mitral VHDs on cardiac CT and MRI.
