Myocardial infarction (MI) and ischemic reperfusion (IR) injury are a common western world problem and are aimed to be better understood by imaging techniques to enable non-invasive longitudinal follow up. Novel MRI based techniques, such as cardiac DWI, BOLD and VAI, are emerging and detailed assessment and comparison with current golden standard and histology is needed to determine their role in treatment planning and revalidation of MI patients. Here we show that specifically BOLD can be used as an early marker in the acute MI phase.
