BACKGROUND The quantitative assessment of myocardial infarctions using delayed contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has recently been validated using postmortem histopathological animal studies. In a prospective study, we investigated the correlation between infarct size as assessed by delayed contrast-enhanced MRI, elevation of creatine kinase (CK), and c-reactive protein (CRP) as well as the time from onset of symptoms to intervention. METHODS Four to 10 days after immediate… CONTINUE READING
