Measurement of myocardial infarct size at early and late time intervals using MR imaging: an experimental study in dogs.


The current study assessed the capability of ECG-gated MR imaging to quantitate both the percentage of the left ventricle involved by acute myocardial infarction and the mass of acute myocardial infarction at 3 and 21 days after coronary occlusion in dogs. Infarct mass was measured from gated transverse MR images using computer-generated calculated-T2… (More)
