Assessment of myocardial infarction injury by strain rate imaging and body surface potential mapping
Myocardial infarct size is clinically relevant, affecting heart function and patient prognosis. After myocardial infarction (MI), it is important to establish whether myocardial dysfunction is due to permanent infarct damage, or if the myocardium is viable, in which case contraction may be improved by revascularization. Established methods for assessing infarct size and viability, such a...
