Objective To compare tissue-velocity MRI (TV-MRI) and tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) to assess regional right ventricular (RV) diastolic performance at the RV free wall (RVFW) and at the RV outflow tract (RVOT) in patients with corrected Tetralogy of Fallot (cToF) and in healthy controls. To compare regional diastolic velocities and performance of the RV between cToF patients and controls. To investigate the relation between RV regional diastolic performance and RV dilatation.
