Magnetic resonance (MR) phase mapping enables an exact analysis of three-directional myocardial velocities with high temporal and spatial resolution. It can be used to perform a segmental wall motion analysis in patients with dilated, ischemic, hypertrophic or right heart cardiomyopathy, and in arrhythmogenic heart disease. Early studies have demonstrated the value of MR phase mapping in synchrony analysis. Even though MR phase mapping data in patients are very limited so far, tissue Doppler studies have pointed to the value of velocity analysis in a variety of heart diseases, thus underlining the potential of MR phase mapping for the diagnosis of myocardial structural abnormalities relevant to arrhythmias in the future.
