CMR imaging demonstrates aortic coarctation distal to the left subclavian, with marked collateralization.

The 4D angiography was utilized to obtain high quality aortography that could be reconstructed in multiple planes for optimum image analysis.

Diagnosis

Aortic coarctation distal to the left subclavian.

Clinical impact of the 32-channel SENSE Torso/Cardiac coil

Using the Achieva and the 32-channel SENSE Torso/Cardiac coil gave crisp, easy-to-interpret cardiac images. With excellent coverage and high SENSE factors, the new coil allows SENSE in any direction for exceptional flexibility.

The 32-channel coil permits images of a higher resolution and image quality to be obtained, thus to aid in diagnosis.
