Diastolic function parameters (mitral inflow velocities, deceleration time, E/A ratio) using phase contrast MRI showed good correlation with that of echocardiography in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Analysis of pulmonary vein flow velocity was feasible on MRI and give additional information on diastolic function analysis.
