Microvascular obstruction is usually seen in a proportion of patients with acute myocardial infarction following reperfusion therapy of an occluded coronary artery. It is characterised by damage and dysfunction of the myocardial microvasculature with a no-reflow phenomenon within the infarct zone. While microvascular obstruction may be demonstrated via a number of different imaging modalities, cardiac magnetic resonance enables accurate identification of microvascular obstruction and also permits assessment of infarct extent and overall left ventricular function during the same imaging examination. We present a pictorial review of the characteristic appearances of microvascular obstruction on cardiac magnetic resonance and highlight the importance of this imaging diagnosis for patient outcome following acute myocardial infarction.
