Reproducibility of Magnetic Resonance Myocardial Salvage Index

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
University of Leipzig Identifier:
First received: November 19, 2008
Last updated: NA
Last verified: November 2008
History: No changes posted
The myocardial salvage assessed by using multimodal cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is a rather new technique which can be used as a surrogate endpoint to reduce the sample size in studies comparing different reperfusion strategies in myocardial infarction. As reproducibility of myocardial salvage has not been evaluated appropriately, we aim to scan 20 patients on 2 subsequent days to evaluate reproducibility of myocardial salvage index.

Condition Intervention
Myocardial Infarction Device: second magnetic resonance imaging scan

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Reproducibility of Myocardial Salvage Index in Acute Myocardial Infarction by Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging
