Figure 5: CMR SSFP still frame. The area in the red box in the panel (a) is magnified in panel (b). The images show a single ridge (LLR) formed by the two walls so close each other that cannot be distinguished. (c) The area in the red box is magnified in panel (d). In this patient with abundant EAT, the images clearly show the folding of the left atrial wall between the LAA and the LUPV protruding into the left atrium. Panels (e) and f (f) are cuts through anatomical specimens showing the fold of the atrial wall that makes up the LLR. Ao = Aorta, LA = Left atrium, LAA = Left atrial appendage, LUPV = Left upper pulmonary vein, CMR SSFP = Cardiac magnetic resonance steady-state free precession, LLR = Left lateral ridge, EAT = Epicardial adipose tissue
