Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The improvement in revascularization techniques and medicine treatment during infarction has substantially reduced mortality during the acute phase of this condition. Since the advent of kinetic sequences and the concomitant development of gadolinium chelates and delayed enhancement sequences, cardiac MRI has become the second-line reference examination for ischemic heart disease. The technique of delayed enhancement with the inversion recovery sequence performed after injection has been validated for numerous indications in ischemic disease. Delayed enhancement sequences make it possible in particular to look for "no-reflow" areas (microvascular obstructions), to quantify the infarction area, and to assess prognosis. MRI also allows us to define the area at risk, that is, the area with edema, and to look for and assess the mechanical complications of the infarction. The aim of this review is to summarize current knowledge about: the pharmacokinetic principles that regulate myocardial enhancement; the different sequences available to acquire delayed enhancement images, and; the value of cardiac MRI in the diagnosis of complications of myocardial infarction.
