Abstract/OtherAbstract:
MCE is a reliable, bedside technique for assessment of a patient with acute coronary syndrome. It can be used to estimate the myocardial risk-area and infarct size and to establish peri-infarct viability. This information is critical in both management decision-making and in assigning prognosis in the setting of acute coronary syndromes.
