Siemens Medical Systems introduced a new cardiac MRI package at

the American Heart Association meeting in New Orleans last week.

The package, for the Iselin, NJ, vendor's 1.5-tesla Vision and

1-tesla Impact Expert scanners, is designed to make cardiac MRI

a viable clinical tool for studying cardiac morphology, according

to the company. The package enables the use of MRI to collect

cardiac function information, such as stroke volumes, ejection

fractions, and dynamic wall measurements.
