Table 2 Inter- and intra-observer variability assessment in eight healthy animals for all investigated LV parameters: EDV, ESV, SV, EF and mass.

From: Accelerated cardiovascular magnetic resonance of the mouse heart using self-gated parallel imaging strategies does not compromise accuracy of structural and functional measures
