Table 4 Recipe table for specific parametric mapping protocols. SAX = short axis slice, 3Ch = 3 chamber view, 4Ch = 4 chamber view, T1 = T1 mapping, T2 = T2 mapping, T2* = T2* mapping

From: Clinical recommendations for cardiovascular magnetic resonance mapping of T1, T2, T2* and extracellular volume: A consensus statement by the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) endorsed by the European Association for Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI)
