The value of CMR to distinguish between the severity of ischemic injuries after myocardial (MI) has yet to be established. Here, we quantified local tissue injuries and their correlation with functional outcome in two different experimental models of MI including native and post-contrast T1 maps, T2 maps and LGE. Only native T1 maps enabled in the acute phase after MI the detection of substantial differences in myocardial tissue texture between the two models, where neither of the other measures was indicative. In conclusion, native T1 mapping enables a gradual assessment of myocardial injury and holds predictive potential for the functional outcome.
