BHF, Reflections of Research image competition, U.K., 4-D MRI, heart blood flow

This image shows blood flow within the main pumping chambers – the ventricles – on both sides of the heart and the vessels leaving the heart. The blue flow is blood that needs oxygen and is travelling to the lungs. The red flow is blood that has been through the lungs and received oxygen. Victoria Stoll of the University of Oxford is using this type of imaging to look at the blood flow within the hearts of people with heart failure, whose hearts are not pumping effectively.
