OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of clinically recognized myocardial infarctions (RMIs) and unrecognized myocardial infarctions (UMIs) in 70-year-old subjects, assessed with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and to relate the findings to cardiac function and morbidity. BACKGROUND Late enhancement MRI identifies myocardial scars and thereby has the potential to detect UMI. METHODS Cardiac MRI was performed on 259 randomly chosen 70-year-old subjects.
