Cardiac magnetic resonance demonstrates myocardial oedema in remote tissue early after reperfused myocardial infarction
Mise en évidence par IRM d’un œdème myocardique précoce en zone saine après infarctus reperfusé

Figure 1 : 

Pixel per pixel T2 calculation based on the exponential fit applied to the myocardial signal intensity in each echo (TE) image (from 40ms to 140ms). T2 values are reported in a final parametric image coding the T2 values for each pixel.

Six-segment model of a midventricular short-axis slice.

Figure 3 : 

Comparison of T2 in patients with (NR+) or without (NR−) no-reflow according to the measurement site. Endo: subendocardium; epi: subepicardium.

Figure 4 : 

Example of a patient with acute myocardial infarction involving the interventricular septum. A shows the original half-Fourier turbo-spin echo images acquired with increasing TE from 40ms to 140ms. B displays the calculated parametric image coding T2 values, showing the distribution of myocardial oedema (white arrow). C shows the presence of no-reflow (black arrow) after the bolus injection of DOTA-Gd.
