Use of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for diagnosis of cardiac diseases and treatment monitoring is expanding. Delayed myocardial enhancement MR imaging is performed after administration of paramagnetic contrast agents and is used for a growing number of clinical applications. This technique was developed primarily for characterization of myocardial scarring after myocardial infarction. On delayed enhancement MR images, scarring or fibrosis appears as an area of high signal intensity that is… CONTINUE READING
