Abstract

Background: Myocardial infarction (MI) triggers a systemic inflammatory response which determines subsequent healing. Experimentally, cardiac positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging have been used successfully to obtain mechanistic insights. We explored the translational potential in patients early after MI. Methods and Results: Positron emission tomography/computed tomography and cardiac magnetic resonance were performed in 15 patients
