Baseline apical tagging analysis in a 49 year old male patient in the mBMC group. Upper part: The curves represent strain in the apical segments, analyzed with HARP software from a short axis CMR tagging sequence. The vertical box represents the end systolic frame (F6). There is almost normal function in the lateral wall, dysfunction in the inferior wall, while septum and the anterior wall are almost akinetic with possible post-systolic contraction. Note increasing noise during diastolic frames, due to T1 relaxation of the tagged myocardium. Lower part: Left: Short axis apical LGE image with hyperintensity in the anterior wall, septum and part of the inferior wall. Mid and right: Short axis apical end diastolic (mid) and end systolic (right) tagging images with application of the semi-automatically traced lines from HARP software. Circumferential mid-wall end systolic strain was calculated from deformation of the orange mid-wall line.
