  1. Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation for the comparison of FDG-PET with the reference method cine MRI. Furthermore the corresponding biases and limits of agreement (LoA) calculated from Bland-Altman plots are presented. *Student's t test revealed a statistically significant difference.
