Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is capable of diagnosing heart muscle sickness. However, a successful MRI examination in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is technical challenging. Our proposal seeks to develop a novel MRI method specifically tailored for patients in AF and measure pre-existing heart muscle sickness to predict how well the heart muscle will function after AF treatment.
