Fetal intracranial volume is one of the most important parameters used in assessing normal fetal growth. Based on volumetric ultrasound (US), Virtual Organ Computer-Aided-anaLysis (VOCALTM) is a commonly used technique for such measurement. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offers better soft tissue contrast for fetal brain imaging and is considered as one of the best tools for tissue volumetry, and as a standard for comparison. In this work we compare fetal intracranial volumes measured from MRI with those obtained from VOCALTM measurements in the same fetuses. Read More

Right ventricular (RV) function represents a prognostic marker in patients with congenital heart defects (CHD), essentially in patients with right bundle branch block (RBBB). Due to the limitations of echocardiographic ventricle volume assessment, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is nowadays the method of choice in the follow-up of these patients.
In a recently published study it has been shown that delayed RV contraction due to RBBB should be taken into account when performing CMR volumetric assessment with short axis plane method.
Since recent recommendations suggest axial plane volume measurements, therefore current work was designed to assess the impact of RBBB on cardiac volumetric parameters evaluated with the axial plane method. Read More
