The hypothesis is that single-shot imaging of myocardial infarction is possible in atrial fibrillation using MRI late enhancement technique
Condition or disease
50 outpatients in Jonkoping County with a diagnosis of in-hospital myocardial infarction, are asked to participate in this study comparing segmented true FISP late enhancement with single-shot trueFISP late enhancement for the diagnosis of myocardial damage. The study does not intervene regarding treatment but is a comparison of the diagnostic power of the two MRI techniques.
