OBJECTIVES To investigate the time-course of late gadolinium enhancement of infarcted myocardium using gadobenate dimeglumine at different dosages and administration regimens. MATERIALS AND METHODS After institutional review board approval and informed consent, we studied 13 patients (aged 63±11 years) with chronic myocardial infarction. They underwent two gadobenate dimeglumine-enhanced MR examinations (interval 24-48 h) using short-axis inversion-recovery gradient-echo sequences, with the… CONTINUE READING
