                 nondestructive method to map myocardial fiber
                 organization. It accurately measures myofiber
                 orientation in hearts bathed in or perfused with
                 cardioplegic solution. This study shows it also
                 accurately maps the fibrous architecture of
                 formalin-fixed hearts. Fiber orientations obtained by
                 MRI and histology at the same locations in an excised
                 portion of rabbit ventricle differed on average by 3.7
                 degrees (SD = 6.4 degrees, N = 70), a closer
                 correspondence than achieved with previous
                 preparations. The longer acquisition times afforded by
                 fixed-heart imaging provides better accuracy, and
                 should enable high-resolution reconstruction of the
                 entire ventricular architecture. No hard copy so far!",
