PURPOSE To define the evolution of infarct characteristics with cardiovascular magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and to assess which of the cardiovascular MR data acquired at day 2 or at 1 week after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), is the stronger predictor of infarct size and left ventricular (LV) function measured at 3 months. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study protocol was reviewed and approved by the local research ethics committee, and written informed consent was obtained. Forty-eight… CONTINUE READING
