Time course of contrast enhancement patterns after Gd-BOPTA in correlation to myocardial infarction and viability: a feasibility study.
Our objective was to analyze contrast enhancement patterns (CEP) and their time course after myocardial infarction (MI) following injection of Gd-BOPTA in correlation with recovery of regional function. Seven patients with subacute MI (18 +/- nine days) were examined before, as well as three and six (n = six) months after, revascularization of the infarct-related artery. Regional wall motion abnormalities were assessed by cine-MRI, and repetitive images of one representative slice were acquir...Expand abstract
