Cardiovascular morphology is significantly influenced by the unsteady behavior of flowing blood. Insight into the hemodynamics promises valuable diagnostic information for various cardiovascular diseases (CVD). At present, diagnosis and prognosis of CVD is primarily based on morphological information, possibly enriched by cine information. In the near future, blood-flow dynamics might become a vital source of information. Blood-flow information can be measured non-invasively. For our work, we depend on 4D phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI) for the acquisition bloodflow velocity information. This technique provides quantitative 3D-cine velocity fields of the blood-flow for a full cardiac cycle.
