Delayed-enhancement MRI is useful for detection of myocardial scarring, but cannot identify diffuse myocardial diseases because of its binary contrast between normal and scarred myocardium. The aim of this educational exhibit is to demonstrate MRI techniques that can identify the diffuse myocardial diseases and to exhibit some types of myocardial diseases with diffuse myocardial tissue damages.
