Abstract

Any abnormality in any of the components of the mitral valve (annulus, leaflets, subvalvular apparatus, left ventricle and left atrium) may lead to mitral valve dysfunction. Current noninvasive cardiac imaging modalities permit accurate assessment of mitral valve anatomy and function. These imaging techniques refine our diagnostic performance, provide additional (patho)physiological insights and help to design new strategies for interventional or surgical treatment of the diseased mitral valve.
