(Left) Magnetic resonance angiography (first row) and solid models used for the CFD simulation (second row). (Right) Combined MRI and X-Ray suite (XMR) for clinical investigations. The XMR suite (Panel A) consists of: 1. MRI scanner; 2. MRI monitor and controls; 3. Anesthetist equipment; 4. X-ray fluoroscopy unit; 5. X-ray monitoring; 6. Door to scrub room; 7. Control room; 8. Sliding tabletop; 9. Five Gauss color marking line. The MRI study included 3D CE angiography of the aorta (B), where the 2D PC-MRI image at level of the ascending aorta (AAo) are shown in (C) and the diaphragmatic aorta (DiaAo) in (D). The x-ray catheterization study included invasive pressure measurements at the level of the ascending and diaphragmatic aorta (E-F).
