Objective To investigate the value of single breath hold cine MRI in evaluating left ventricular function. Methods Sixteen patients with cardiac diseases were studied with single breath hold cine MRI and multiple breath hold cine MRI. Measurement results of EDV, ESV, SV, EF, MM with single breath hold cine MRI were compared with those of multiple breath hold method. Results The measurement results of the two methods were closely correlated. No statistical difference was found between measurement results of the two methods. Conclusion Single breath hold cine MRI is valuable in evaluating left ventricular function.
