From: Variability and homogeneity of cardiovascular magnetic resonance myocardial T2-mapping in volunteers compared to patients with edema

   FLASH SSFP  
SAX Mean 52 ± 5 55 ± 5 p < 0.0001
  Range 41–62 46–69  
  CI (5–95%) 51–53 54–57  
4CV Mean 57 ± 6 59 ± 6 p < 0.0001
  Range 46–74 51–80  
  CI (5–95%) 56–59 57–60  
   p < 0.0001 p < 0.0001  
  1. CI denotes confidence interval, SAX = short axis, 4CV = four-chamber view, FLASH = fast low angle shot, SSFP = steady state free precession.
