Validation of Contrast Enhanced Cine Steady-State Free Precession and T2-Weigthed CMR for Assessment of Ischemic Myocardial Area- At-Risk

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Measuring myocardial salvage is important to evaluate the possible cardioprotective effects of adjunctive cardioprotective intervention in patients with myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous
intervention. Contrast-enhanced steady-state free precession magnetic resonance imaging (CE-CINE) has recently been used to quantify AAR and validated against myocardial perfusion SPECT. In this study we sought to
determine how well T2-STIR and CE-CINE depicts AAR in an experimental porcine model of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury using histopathology as the reference for infarct size and AAR.
