Accurate diagnosis, characterization, and quantification of myocardial infarction (MI) is essential to assess the impact of therapy and to aid in predicting prognosis of patients with ischemic heart disease. Delayed contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance (DE-MR) imaging has the potential of being the gold standard for quantification of MI. It has also been useful in correlating electrocardiography abnormalities with the location and transmurality of infarction. The focus of this review is to… CONTINUE READING
