Myocardial edema as detected by pre-contrast t1 and t2 cmr delineates area at risk associated with acute myocardial infarction
JACC Cardiovascular Imaging, 06/22/2012
Ugander M et al. – For determining AAR after acute myocardial infarction, noncontrast T1 mapping and T2 mapping sequences yield similar quantitative results, and both agree well with microspheres. The relaxation properties T1 and T2 both change in a way that is consistent with the presence of myocardial edema following myocardial ischemia/reperfusion.
