Clinical experience of strain imaging using DENSE for detecting infarcted cardiac segments

Abstract

BACKGROUND We hypothesised that myocardial deformation determined with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will detect myocardial scar. METHODS Displacement Encoding with Stimulated Echoes (DENSE) was used to calculate left ventricular strain in 125 patients (29 women and 96 men) with suspected coronary artery disease. The patients also underwent cine… (More)
