Abstract
This thesis recounts the work that has been done on aortic stiffness in our institution where cardiovascular radiology has played a central role. The papers comprised in this thesis represent different steps on the learning curve ultimately leading to the practical application of MR PVW in a specific population of Turner patients. We have scanned 100 normal individuals in a wide range of ages for normal values. We have used MRI as an anatomical reference to finetune the carotid-tofemoral PWV technique algorithm; we have developed a more integrated software solution for postprocessing; and we have investigated our Hospital’s Turner population with MRI PWV. The clinical part of this thesis aims to, both morphologically and functionally, study the entire aorta in a segmental way in Turner patients, and estimate the clinical impact of this measurement for Turner patients.
