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.

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.

Fig2: Left ventricular volumes, mass and function in systole and diastole normalized to age and body surface area for males according to reference [5].

Mentions: Because slice FGRE acquisition parameters at 3T are different than at 1.5T, adaptation of 1.5T FGRE normal parameters to 3T FGRE imaging is not recommended. Information on ethnicity in relationship to LV parameters is not available for SSFP technique. Finally, the studies in Table 1 were all conducted in European centers. Normal values for left ventricular dimensions and functions according to these studies are presented in Tables 2, 3 and 4. Age dependent normal values for men and women are also presented in Figures 2 and 3.Figure 2
