MRI is an indispensible tool to understand heart disease in our animal models.

Left Ventricular Flow
Right Ventricular Flow
Fully oxygenated left atrial flow enters the left ventricle and forms complex subvalvular vortices. Vortex formation time and size appears to be related to ventricular geometry and valve function. During systole, flow exiting the ventricle enters the aortic root at high velocity towards the arch.
Right ventricular hemodynamics visualized using 3D phase contrast magnetic resonance imaging ("4D Flow"). Venous return to the heart (red) enters the right atrium and descends through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle. Right ventricular flow (yellow) leaves the right heart through the pulmonary valve to enter the pulmonary artery. Main pulmonary arterial flow (green) enters the pulmonary braches (blue).
