Cardiac MRI demonstrates differences between heart transplant recipients and controls using tissue phase mapping (TPM), T2, and T1. Significant correlations between myocardial velocities and dyssynchrony obtained from TPM (myocardial function) and T2 and T1 (myocardial tissue structure) suggest a relationship between impaired structure and function among transplant recipients.
