Typical flow curve through the ascending aorta obtained after tracing the contour of the ascending aorta in all cardiac time frames on the velocity-encoded images. The peak ejection rate (2) is a result of left ventricular contraction. The area under the curve between 1 and 3, is the left ventricular stroke volume. Another interesting functional parameter which can be derived from the curve is the fastest change in flux between, for example 1 and 2, the so called “aortic acceleration” peak. survey image (Fig.
