Evaluating a New Echocardiography Imaging Procedure for Evaluating Heart Function

Conditions

Ischemia | Ischemic Heart Disease | Myocardial Infarction

What is the purpose of this trial?

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and echocardiography are two imaging methods that are used to obtain pictures of the heart and assess heart function. This study will evaluate a new, four-dimensional echocardiography approach of obtaining heart images to determine if it is as effective at evaluating heart function as MRI.
