BACKGROUND The identification and assessment of myocardial infarction (MI) are important for therapeutic and prognostic purposes, yet current recommended diagnostic strategies have significant limitations. We prospectively tested the performance of delayed-enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with gadolinium-based contrast for the detection of MI in an international, multicenter trial. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients with their first MI were enrolled in an acute (< or = 16 days after MI… CONTINUE READING
