The area of myocardium at risk (AAR) is defined as hypoperfused myocardium at the time of an ischemic episode, such as acute myocardial infarction (MI). To assess AAR, measures of both scar and edema must be combined. Late Gadolinium enhancement (LGE) with phase sensitive inversion recovery (PSIR) is a well-established method of delineating scar. Recently, quantitative 3D T2 mapping has been shown to be a robust method for visualizing edema. In this work it is shown that the combination of 3D respiratory navigator gated T2 Mapping and PSIR make high-resolution whole-heart AAR determination possible.
