Improving MRI for People with Heart Disease

(IRB#: IRB_00154019)

People with heart disease may need an imagining scan known as an MRI. Research is needed to improve MRI methods used for finding heart problems and better determining what is normal and what is a disease. These include myocardial fibrosis. The thickening of tissue in heart muscles. The information we gain may aid future patients.
