In this study, we employed MR tissue phase mapping (TPM) to evaluate three-directional left ventricular velocity. The purpose of this study is to establish quantitative indices to comprehend the characteristics of myocardial motion in patients with cirrhotic cardiomyopathy. Compared with normal subjects, patients displayed lower systolic Vz and prolonged systolic TTPz. Lower systolic Vphi was also demonstrated in patient group. In conclusion, to analyze myocardial velocity and TTP can potentially provide helpful information for realizing the myocardial compensatory mechanism in patients with cirrhotic cardiomyopathy.
