PURPOSE To characterize the extent and distribution of left ventricular myocardial scar in delayed enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Delayed enhancement images from 18 patients were categorized into three groups based on myocardial scar appearance: discrete myocardial infarction (N = 10), diffuse fibrosis (N = 4), and circumferential endocardial scarring (N = 4). Images were segmented manually by two observers (twice by one observer) to identify nonviable… CONTINUE READING
