[Evaluating signal intensity of movement-impaired myocardial segments in MR delayed images after administration of Gd-DTPA. Correlation of regional increase in contraction after revascularization]

Abstract:

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to correlate delayed contrast enhancement of dysfunctional regions of the myocardium after injection of Gd-DTPA with the improvement of regional contractility 3 months after revascularization. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eleven patients with coronary artery disease and wall motion abnormalities underwent MR imaging before and 3 months after revascularization therapy (PTCA or CABG). Short-axis images were acquired using a cine gradient echo sequence. After revascula...
