The Correlation of 3D DT-MRI Fiber Disruption with Structural and Mechanical Degeneration in Porcine Myocardium

Abstract

Evaluation of structural parameters following a myocardial infarction (MI) is important to assess left ventricular function and remodeling. In this study, we assessed the capability of 3D diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) to assess tissue degeneration shortly after an MI using a porcine model of infarction. Two days after an induced… (More)
