Abstract

Objective: It is important to measure left ventricular function (LVF) accurately in the diagnosis and follow-up of cardiovascular diseases. Different imaging algorithms and mathematical calculations have been developed for the evaluation of LVF in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and numerous studies are still being carried on this. In our study, LVF was calculated by two different measurement methods in MRI and were compared with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) to assess the correlation and the consistency of these with TTE.
