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.

Fig21: Measurements for myocardial T2* are obtained in the septum.

Mentions: Since the gradient-echo T2* technique is vulnerable to distortions of the local magnetic field e.g. by air-tissue interfaces, measurements are obtained by placing a region of interest on the interventricular septum of a midventricular short axis slice, since the septum is surrounded by blood on both sides [83] (FigureĀ 21).Figure 21
