Delayed enhancement cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is frequently used to detect and quantify the size of myocardial infarction. In this study we demonstrate the feasibility of 3D late enhancement imaging in a mouse model on a clinical 1.5T whole body MR scanner and compare the obtained results with 2D sequences as used for clinical applications and histologic sections.
