Rapid Diagnosis of Myocardial Damage and Coronary Stenosis With Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

2014-08-27 03:50:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The hypothesis is that single-shot imaging of myocardial infarction is possible in atrial fibrillation using MRI late enhancement technique

Description

50 outpatients in Jonkoping County with a diagnosis of in-hospital myocardial infarction, are asked to participate in this study comparing segmented true FISP late enhancement with single-shot trueFISP late enhancement for the diagnosis of myocardial damage. The study does not intervene regarding treatment but is a comparison of the diagnostic power of the two MRI techniques.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.

A myocardial infarction that does not produce elevations in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. ST segment elevation of the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).

A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).

MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.

Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
