Cardiac MRI in systemic sclerosis (SSc)

Recommended Posts

Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in systemic sclerosis (SSc): a cross-sectional observational study of 52 patients. MRI is a reliable and sensitive technique to diagnose heart involvement in SSc and to analyse its mechanisms, including its inflammatory, microvascular and fibrotic components. Compared to echocardiography, MRI appears to provide additional information by visualising myocardial fibrosis and inflammation. A-L Hachulla. Annals of Rheumatic Diseases. 3 December 2008.
