Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the heart and cardiovascular system, Including faster pulse sequences and extensive clinical and laboratory research, have made MRI an increasingly Important tool In the cardiac imaging arsenal. Its most Important cardiac application may be the determination of myocardial viability. MRI is rapidly becoming the clinical gold standard In distinguishing myocardium that has the ability to contract versus myocardlum that is replaced by fibrosis or scar.
