OBJECTIVES Our goal was to validate myocardium at risk on T2-weighted short tau inversion recovery (T2-STIR) cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) over time, compared with that seen with perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, and to assess the amount of salvaged myocardium after 1 week. BACKGROUND To assess reperfusion therapy, it is necessary to determine how much myocardium is salvaged by measuring the final… CONTINUE READING
