BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine whether edema imaging by T2-weighted cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging could retrospectively delineate the area at risk in reperfused myocardial infarction. We hypothesized that the size of the area at risk during a transient occlusion would be similar to the T2-weighted hyperintense region observed 2(More)
BACKGROUND In hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), myocardial abnormalities are commonly heterogeneous. Two patterns of late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) have been reported: a bright "confluent" and an intermediate intensity abnormality termed "diffuse," each representing different degrees of myocardial scarring. We used MRI to study the relation between(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether in vivo T2-weighted cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) delineates the area at risk (AAR) in 2-day-old nonreperfused myocardial infarction (MI). AAR was defined as the size of the perfusion defect on day 0. MI and the residual ischemic viable border zone comprise the AAR. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen dogs with(More)
A 12-year-old girl with a history of papillary thyroid cancer underwent radioiodine remnant ablation using (131)I. Posttherapy whole-body (131)I scintigraphy revealed not only the known activity in the neck but also increased activity in the superficial posterior right upper thigh. On further clinical evaluation, the patient was found to have a mosquito(More)
