Myocardial salvage by T2W-CMR: direct comparison to a non-destructive, high resolution, 3-dimensional ex-vivo assessment of the area at risk simultaneous with infarction

Abstract

Background The amount of myocardial salvage is a critical determinant of prognosis in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). T2WCMR in combination with DE-CMR is thought to be a promising method that could presumably measure salvage. However, direct comparisons with the appropriate reference standard are limited. Additionally, even if a pathology reference… (More)
