BACKGROUND Whether T1-mapping cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) can accurately quantify the area-at-risk (AAR) as delineated by T2 mapping and assess myocardial salvage at 3T in reperfused ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients is not known and was investigated in this study. METHODS 18 STEMI patients underwent CMR at 3T(More)
UNLABELLED Respiratory motion during PET acquisition may lead to blurring in resulting images and underestimation of uptake parameters. The advent of integrated PET/MR scanners allows us to exploit the integration of modalities, using high spatial resolution and high-contrast MR images to monitor and correct PET images degraded by motion. We proposed a(More)
Patient motion due to respiration can lead to artefacts and blurring in positron emission tomography (PET) images, in addition to quantification errors. The integration of PET with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in PET-MR scanners provides complementary clinical information, and allows the use of high spatial resolution and high contrast MR images to(More)
