Myocardium at risk by magnetic resonance imaging: head-to-head comparison of T2-weighted imaging and contrast-enhanced steady-state free precession
European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging, 05/30/2012
Ubachs JFA et al. – There is a good agreement between the MaR assessed by T2–weighted imaging and that assessed by CE–SSFP in patients with reperfused acute myocardial infarction 1 week after the acute event. Thus, both methods can be used to determine MaR and myocardial salvage at this point in time.
