Study Completion Date: April 2009
Primary Completion Date: September 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
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.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patient with an in-hospital diagnosis of myocardial infarction having permanent atrial fibrillation.

Inclusion Criteria:

in-hospital diagnosis of myocardial infarction

Exclusion Criteria:

pacemaker, not willing to participate, metallic objects in brain or eyes,
