Résumé

Background. - Recently, 1.5-Tesla cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) was reported to provide a reliable alternative to transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) for the quantification of aortic stenosis (AS) severity. Few data are available using higher magnetic field strength MRI systems in this context. Aims. - To evaluate the feasibility and reproducibility of the assessment of aortic valve area (AVA) using 3-Tesla CMR in routine clinical practice, and to assess concordance between TTE and CMR for the estimation of AS severity. Methods. - Ninety-one consecutive patients (60 men; mean age 74 +/- 10 years) with known AS documented by TTE were included prospectively in the study. Results. - All patients underwent comprehensive TTE and CMR examination, including AVA estimation using the TTE continuity equation (0.81 +/- 0.18 cm(2)), direct CMR planimetry (CMRp) (0.90 +/- 0.22 cm(2)) and CMR using Hakki's formula (CMRhk), a simplified Gorlin formula (0.70 +/- 0.19 cm(2)). Although significant agreement with TTE was found for CMRp (r=0.72) and CMRhk (r = 0.66), CMRp slightly overestimated (bias= 0.11 +/- 0.18 cm(2)) and CMRhk slightly underestimated (bias = 0.11 +/- 0.17 cm(2)) AVA compared with TTE. Inter- and intraobserver reproducibilities of CMR measurements were excellent (r= 0.72 and r= 0.74 for CMRp and r= 0.88 and r=0.92 for peak aortic velocity, respectively). Conclusion. - 3-Tesla CMR is a feasible, radiation-free, reproducible imaging modality for the estimation of severity of AS in routine practice, knowing that CMRp tends to overestimate AVA and CMRhk to underestimate AVA compared with TTE.
