The myocardial salvage assessed by using multimodal cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is a rather new technique which can be used as a surrogate endpoint to reduce the sample size in studies comparing different reperfusion strategies in myocardial infarction. As reproducibility of myocardial salvage has not been evaluated appropriately, we aim to scan 20 patients on 2 subsequent days to evaluate reproducibility of myocardial salvage index.
|Study Design:||Cohort, Prospective|
|Official Title:||Reproducibility of Myocardial Salvage Index in Acute Myocardial Infarction by Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging|
|Acute myocardial infarction patients||Device: second magnetic resonance imaging scan|
