In vivo MRI visualization of acute myocardial ischemia and reperfusion in ferrets by the persistent action of the contrast agent Gd (BME-DTTA).

Abstract

BACKGROUND Contrast agent-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has the potential to visualize myocardial ischemia. To date, however, no agent has been found that has a sustained effect that allows MRI detection for the entire duration of ischemia and reperfusion and thus is useful in conjunction with stress test MRI. In this article, we introduce the… (More)
