Phase contrast (PC)
MR flow measurements are affected by multiple sources of error, including background
phase offsets. The gold-standard approach to correct these offsets involves
repeating PC measurements on a static phantom, prolonging each CMR study and impeding
exam workflow. Here, we compared the performance of a self-calibrated correction
to static-phantom corrected PC data obtained from a pediatric and congenital
heart disease population. Self-calibrated correction results showed strong agreement with
phantom-corrected data for all vessel types and differed from static-phantom
correction by a mean difference in Qp/Qs values of only 0.069.
