OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to assess the area at risk (AAR) in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction with 2 different cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging methods and to compare them with the validated angiographic Alberta Provincial Project for Outcome Assessment in Coronary Heart Disease Score (APPROACH-score) in a large consecutive patient cohort. BACKGROUND Edema imaging with T(2)-weighted CMR and the endocardial surface area (ESA) assessed by late gadolinium… CONTINUE READING
