Abstract

Objective: Four-dimensional flow cardiovascular magnetic resonance may improve assessment of hemodynamics in patients with aortic dissection. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and accuracy of 4-dimensional flow cardiovascular magnetic resonance assessment of true and false lumens flow.Methods: Thirteen ex vivo porcine aortic dissection models were mounted to a flow loop. Four-dimensional flow cardiovascular magnetic resonance and 2-dimensional phase-contrast cardiovascular magnetic resonance measurements were performed, assessed for intraobserver and interobserver variability, and compared with a reference standard of sonotransducer flow volume measurements. Intraobserver and interobserver variability of 4-dimensional flow cardiovascular magnetic resonance were also assessed in 14 patients with aortic dissection and compared with 2-dimensional phase-contrast cardiovascular magnetic resonance.Results: In the ex vivo model, the intraobserver and interobserver measurements had Lin's correlation coefficients of 0.98 and 0.96 and mean differences of 0.17 (+/- 3.65) mL/beat and -0.59 (+/- 5.33) mL/beat, respectively; 4-dimensional and sonotransducer measurements had a Lin's concordance correlation coefficient of 0.95 with a mean difference of 0.35 (+/- 4.92) mL/beat, respectively. In patients with aortic dissection, the intraobserver and interobserver measurements had Lin's concordance correlation coefficients of 0.98 and 0.97 and mean differences of +/- 0.95 (+/- 8.24) mL/beat and 0.62 (+/- 10.05) mL/beat, respectively; 4-dimensional and 2-dimensional flow had a Lin's concordance correlation coefficient of 0.91 with a mean difference of +/- 9.27 (+/- 17.79) mL/beat because of consistently higher flow measured with 4-dimensional flow cardiovascular magnetic resonance in the ascending aorta.Conclusions: Four-dimensional flow cardiovascular magnetic resonance is feasible in patients with aortic dissection and can reliably assess flow in the true and false lumens of the aorta. This promotes potential future work on functional assessment of aortic dissection hemodynamics.
