3 Study of Blood Flow a b c d e f Fig. 7 “Morphologically” right ventricle (mRV) and “morphologically” left ventricle (mLV). (a) Schematic diagram. (b) “Fourchamber” axial spin-echo images through the ventricular chambers in an (c) and an adolescent (d). Gradient-echo cine-MR axial images (e and f). Morphologically right atrium (mRA) and left atrium (mLA). Identification of mRV and mLV is based on the insertion of the atrioventricular valve leaflets in relation to the interventricular septum: the tricuspid valve (TV– arrowhead - not VM) which always opens into an mRV, is always situated more anteriorly (and inferiorly to the apex of the heart) compared to the mitral valve (MV– arrow), which always opens into an mLV and which is situated more posteriorly.

The “morphologically” left atrial appendage (5g) has a finger-like shape with a narrow implantation on the left atrium (5) (situated on the left); pulmonary infundibulum (2i) below the pulmonary artery, right superior (4sd), right inferior (4id), and left inferior (4ig) pulmonary veins, ascending and descending aorta (7 and 7d), superior vena cava (8s); note the origin of the right coronary artery (20) (also see Chap. 19b) right and spleen (Sp) and stomach (St) on the left, inferior vena cava (IVC-8i) on the right and abdominal aorta (Ao-7i) on the left.
