CMR mapping techniques for myocardium at risk: next step into a bright future?

In the setting of myocardial infarction (MI) rapid reperfusion of acutely ischemic, but yet only reversibly injured, myocardium has the potential for salvaging viable myocytes. The assessment of myocardial salvage is clinically important because significant salvage is associated with improved shortand long-term survival after infarction (2,3). Moreover… CONTINUE READING
