The ischaemic and scar burden measured by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in patients with ischaemic coronary heart disease from the CE-MARC study

Abstract

Background The prognostic importance of the ischaemic and scar burden, and their impact on coronary heart disease (CHD) patient management is well established from single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) studies. Recently, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) has been shown to have superior sensitivity for the detection of CHD compared with SPECT [1… (More)
