In this study we compared two in vivo imaging techniques to obtain anatomical and physiological parameters of mice hart. Our results suggest that measurements of enjection fraction and mass of left ventricle were easier and cheaper with ultrasound echocardiography however evaluation of a scar tissue and re-muscularization of infarcted myocardium are only possible with MRI method
