Figure 7: CMR SSFP still frame in four chamber view (a and b) and in right ventricular inflow (c and d) view. The areas in the red box in the panels a and c are magnified in panels b and d. (b) The image clearly shows the juxtaposition of the four components that form the tricuspid annulus. (d) The image shows how deeply the EAT penetrates into the atrioventricular groove. e and f are corresponding cuts through anatomic specimens to show the hinge of the tricuspid valve leaflet (white arrow) and the deep excursion of EAT into the right atrioventricular groove. RA = Right atrium, RV = Right ventricle, LA = Left atrium, LV = Left ventricle, RAA = Right atrial appendage, CMR SSFP = Cardiac magnetic resonance steady-state free precession, EAT = Epicardial adipose tissue
