Advanced imaging of mitral valve disease

Michael F. Morris, Philip A. Araoz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mitral valve dysfunction is the most common cause of valvular disease in the US. Although echocardiography is the primary non-invasive modality for visualizing the mitral valve, advances in technology have allowed improved evaluation of mitral disease with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT). This article will provide an overview of the imaging findings and quantification techniques for mitral regurgitation and mitral stenosis. In addition, the role of MRI and CT in the evaluation of a suspected mass of the mitral apparatus and in the assessment of post-operative complications is discussed.
