Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR)-derived extracellular volume (ECV) requires a hematocrit (Hct) to correct contrast volume distributions in blood. However, the timely assessment of Hct can be challenging and has limited the routine clinical application of ECV. The goal of the present study was to evaluate whether ECV measurements lead to significant error if a venous Hct was unavailable on the day of CMR.
