MR imaging of spatial extent of microvascular injury in reperfused ischemically injured rat myocardium: value of blood pool ultrasmall superparamagnetic particles of iron oxide.

Abstract

PURPOSE To (a) assess the value of a blood pool magnetic resonance (MR) imaging contrast agent (Clariscan) for characterizing microvascular injury in ischemically injured rat myocardium and (b) compare the extent of microvascular injury at Clariscan-enhanced MR imaging with infarction and areas at risk seen with histochemical staining.
