Reversible myocardial dysfunction can be identified by contrast-enhanced MRI before coronary revascularization and is strongly related to the degree of improvement in the global mean wall-motion score and the ejection fraction after Revascularization. Expand
Relationship of MRI delayed contrast enhancement to irreversible injury, infarct age, and contractile function.
In the pathophysiologies investigated, contrast MRI distinguishes between reversible and irreversible ischemic injury independent of wall motion and infarct age. Expand
Prognostic significance of microvascular obstruction by magnetic resonance imaging in patients with acute myocardial infarction.
After infarction, MRI-determined microvascular obstruction predicts more frequent cardiovascular complications, and infarct size determined by MRI also relates directly to long-term prognosis in patients with acute myocardial infarctions. Expand
An improved MR imaging technique for the visualization of myocardial infarction.
The segmented inversion-recovery turboFLASH sequence produced the greatest differences in regional myocardial signal intensity in animals and patients and substantially improved differentiation between injured and normal regions. Expand
Contrast-enhanced MRI and routine single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) perfusion imaging for detection of subendocardial myocardial infarcts: an imaging study
BACKGROUND Myocardial infarcts are routinely detected by nuclear imaging techniques such as single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging. A newly developedExpand
Delayed enhancement cardiovascular magnetic resonance assessment of non-ischaemic cardiomyopathies.
The potential of DE-CMR to distinguish between ischaemic and NICM as well as to differentiate non-ischaemic aetiologies is reviewed, to demonstrate how this approach is based on the underlying relationships between contrast enhancement and myocardial pathophysiology. Expand
Myocardial scarring in asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Myocardial scarring is common in asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic HCM patients who have not suffered sudden death, and correlates positively with regional hypertrophy and inversely with regional contraction. Expand
Improved detection of coronary artery disease by stress perfusion cardiovascular magnetic resonance with the use of delayed enhancement infarction imaging.
A combined perfusion and infarction CMR examination with a visual interpretation algorithm can accurately diagnose CAD in the clinical setting and the combination is superior to perfusion-CMR alone. Expand
Transmural Extent of Acute Myocardial Infarction Predicts Long-Term Improvement in Contractile Function
In patients with acute myocardial infarctions, the transmural extent of infarction defined by ceMRI predicts improvement in contractile function. Expand
Detection of Myocardial Damage in Patients With Sarcoidosis
In patients with sarcoidosis, DE-CMR is more than twice as sensitive for cardiac involvement as current consensus criteria, and appears to be associated with future adverse events including cardiac death. Expand
