Assessment of longitudinal changes in strain using DENSE in patients with myocardial infarction


Methods 50 male patients (age 56 ± 10 years) underwent CMR on a 1.5T Siemens Avanto within 7 days of MI, and 47 returned for a follow-up scan after 6 months. The protocol included cine, DENSE (2D) and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) imaging. Cine images were used to assess cardiac function by calculating LV ejection fraction (LVEF) and end-systolic volume… (More)
