Textural analysis of late gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance images can discriminate acute from chronic myocardial infarction

Abstract

Background Late gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance (LGE MR) imaging is the current standard modality for evaluating the extent of myocardial damage in the presence of ischemic cardiomyopathies (ICM). However it is difficult to differentiate acute from chronic myocardial infarctions (MI) by standard signal intensity thresholding methods. We hypothesize that textural analysis of myocardial infarct regions has the potential to discriminate acute from chronic MI in high resolution LGE CMR images.
