Late gadolinium enhancement is a gold standard for myocardial scar assessment in patients with ventricular tachycardia before their ablation. The presence of cardiac implantable electronic devices degrade the image quality by producing the hyper signal intensity and make the image non-diagnostic. The modified wideband inversion recovery sequence alleviates these hyper signal intensity artifacts and render diagnostic images.
