We measured longitudinal rotating frame relaxation time
and late gadolinium enhanced (LGE) images in chronic
infarct in mouse model. Infarct was induced by ligation
of left anterior descending (LAD). Linear association (R
p < 0.001) between the infarct volumes based on T
and LGE images were found. We conclude that chronic
infarct size can be determined by T
in mouse chronic infarct model.
