Differentiation between acutely ischemic myocardium and zones of completed infarction in dogs on the basis of frequency-dependent backscatter.

Abstract

The goal of this work was to determine whether the frequency dependence of apparent backscatter coefficient (not corrected for attenuation within the myocardium) could differentiate completed, remote infarction from acute myocardial injury in vivo. Myocardial infarcts were produced in six dogs by coronary artery occlusion. One to 12 months later, acute… (More)
