Detection of infarcted tissue the heart by magnetic resonance imaging

Journal Article

Morphological analysis of myocardial infarct structure has demonstrated that there is probably an anatomical basis for the induction and maintenance of ventricular tachycardia. The further study of this phenomenon requires an efficient, accurate method for quantitative analysis of pathological anatomy. We have evaluated the ability of magnetic resonance imaging to distinguish between normal and infarcted tissue in formalin-fixed human hearts with distant myocardial infarctions.
