Table 2 Mean differences (MD) in T1values between septal and SAX ROIs or lateral measurements (LVH – left ventricular hypertrophy, DCM – dilated cardiomyopathy)

From: Standardization of T1 measurements with MOLLI in differentiation between health and disease – the ConSept study

MOLLI Native T1 values (MD ± SD) Post-contrast T1 values (MD ± SD) Lambda (MD ± SD)
1.5 T Septal vs. SAX Septal vs. Lateral Septal vs. SAX Septal vs. Lateral Septal vs. SAX Septal vs. Lateral
Normal 16 ± 11 21 ± 43 6 ± 14 11 ± 28 0.002 ± 0.03 0.003 ± 0.06
LVH 20 ± 21 29 ± 49 11 ± 19 13 ± 39 0.01 ± 0.04 0.02 ± 0.09
DCM 28 ± 31 50 ± 64 19 ± 22 25 ± 55 0.02 ± 0.04 0.02 ± 0.11

Normal 21 ± 22 46 ± 46 10 ± 18 13 ± 20 0.002 ± 0.08 0.02 ± 0.09
LVH 16 ± 41 40 ± 37 17 ± 26 16 ± 37 0.01 ± 0.06 0.01 ± 0.10
DCM 26 ± 49 55 ± 92 24 ± 38 27 ± 43 0.02 ± 0.10 0.02 ± 0.12
  1. For both field strengths and all groups, the MDs were greater for lateral measurements than SAX ROIs (p < 0.05 for all).
