this study demonstrated the feasibility of CE-CMRA for detection of myocardial hyperemia in patients with suspected acute myocarditis. Furthermore, this approach could serve as a helpful supplementary tool to assess coronary artery significant stenosis. The results of the present study suggested that CE-CMRA may potentially improve accuracy of evaluating the original Lake Louise Criteria to identify acute myocarditis in combination with T2-STIR and LGE imaging.
