Bottom Line: Morphological and functional parameters such as chamber size and function, aortic diameters and distensibility, flow and T1 and T2* relaxation time can be assessed and quantified by cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR).Knowledge of normal values for quantitative CMR is crucial to interpretation of results and to distinguish normal from disease.In this review, we present normal reference values for morphological and functional CMR parameters of the cardiovascular system based on the peer-reviewed literature and current CMR techniques and sequences.

Fig18: Reference percentiles for aortic distensibility measured at four different sites (ascending aorta [a], aortic arch [b], aortic isthmus [c] and descending aorta above the diaphragm [d]) on cine GRE images at maximal aortic distension according to reference [53].

Mentions: There is a single publication only of a systematic evaluation of normal aortic distensibility and pulse wave velocity in children (Table 42). Reference percentiles by age according to reference [53] are presented in Figures 18 and 19.Table 42
