LV volume overload due to aortic regurgitation in 21-year-old man with Marfan’s disease. Diastolic SSFP cine MR image in a three-chamber view (a) and LV outflow tract view (b). Velocity-encoded cine MRI just below the level of the aortic valve at systole (c) and diastole (d). Dilated LV with an end-diastolic volume of 500 ml, a stroke volume of 255 ml and an ejection fraction of 51%. Cine MRI (a, b) shows important aortic regurgitant jet (arrows). Velocity-encoded cine MRI shows non-closure of the aortic valve leaflets during diastole (d) with a regurgitant fraction of 43%
