Detection of fibrosis using CMR: In patients with cardiomyopathies we want to investigate the diagnostic value of T1 mapping in comparision to late gadolinium enhancement imaging for the evaluation of fibrosis. Epicardial adipose tissue: In patients with cardiomyopathies we want to correlate changes in epicardial adipose tissue to morphological and functional parameters as well as outcome. Na+-Imaging: In cooperation with the Institute of Computer Assisted Clinical Medicine (Prof. Dr. rer. Nat L. Schad) we aime to examine the feasibility of 23Na+ heart imaging with a double-resonant 23Na-1H surface RF coil at 3 T.
